Sharpe Group is pleased to welcome back to the team, Kristin Croone. Kristin recently returned to Sharpe as a Senior Consultant after taking a short break from the gift planning field. She has a J.D. from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. She previously worked with Sharpe as a technical editor and has worked as an associate in tax and estate planning in Cleveland, Ohio and Memphis, Tennessee. She also served as director of planned giving and legal counsel for The Community Foundation of Greater Memphis. We are lucky to have her back!
I am very happy that Sharpe Group has invited me to return to their family. I have spent much of my adult life immersed in charitable tax and estate planning and have particularly enjoyed using that knowledge to advise nonprofits and their donors in leaving a significant gift as part of their legacy.
It seems that so much has changed: interest rates, stock market valuations, tax laws, even life expectancies! Yet as I’ve spent my last few weeks—I return to what drew me to the field in the first place—altruism, optimism and a hope for better outcomes. That’s the engine that drives the work of Sharpe Group, not only in its mission to serve nonprofits and their donors but also with our skeleton crew working out of our physical office in Memphis. These values permeate the culture at Sharpe at every level.
Sharpe Group has been long respected for their expertise in helping nonprofit organizations raise large gifts through a strong planned giving program. Their history is unmatched. I am honored to be a part of this impressive team, and I look forward to helping your organizations raise large gifts through planned giving.
