Stone Joins ACR Advisory Council

The Alliance for Charitable Reform (ACR) was founded as a project of The Philanthropy Roundtable in 2005 as an emergency advocacy, initiated to respond to legislative efforts on Capitol Hill targeted at the charitable community, particularly from the perspective of smaller family foundations. Since 2005, the ACR has worked to identify ways to preserve and expand America’s standing as the most generous and charitable nation, to safeguard the freedom of donors and private foundations to carry out their goals and missions and to promote common-sense laws and regulations which encourage charitable giving and impose strict penalties on violators. To further enhance public policy efforts, ACR convened an advisory council, bringing together some of the nation’s top legal and policy experts on philanthropy. Andersen Tax Managing Director, Jennifer Stone was recently appointed to serve on the advisory council.

Jennifer Stone contributes to the council nearly two decades of experience in comprehensive tax preparation and consulting services to individuals and family groups. Her practice integrates tax planning for individuals and their privately-held businesses, trusts, and private foundations to help with charitable planning, cash flow planning, and transaction structuring. As both a tax professional and a trusted advisor in the broad spectrum of her clients’ financial lives, Jennifer works with venture capitalists, corporate executives, entrepreneurs at every stage of business development, young families new to wealth, and sophisticated families for whom wealth is not new but multi-generational planning is critical.
