Jennifer J. Hicks CAP®, CFRE

Jennifer J. Hicks, CAP® CFRE, Principal, Glenrose Philanthropy Advisors, based in Spokane Washington

Jennifer is a Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP®) and Certified Fund-Raising Executive (CFRE). She is the immediate past president of the Inland Northwest Planned Giving Council, treasurer of the Spokane Estate Planning Council. She is also a member of the Purposeful Planning Institute and completed the Mastery Program for Purposeful Trusts and Legacies in 2023.

She works alongside attorneys, CPAs and financial advisors and other professionals to help clients discern and create their charitable vision, minimize taxes, convey their values to their heirs, and experience greater meaning with their wealth. She believes that intentional charitable giving strategies greatly increase the likelihood of successful intergenerational wealth transfers. Her philosophy is that giving generously is above-all about building strong communities and resilient families.

Her processes are “above the line” on the “who and why”, while the other professionals work “below the line” focusing on the “how and when” with an eye on taxes, tools, and techniques. Both are extremely important to success.

Jennifer has a BA in Music from Eastern Washington University and has worked closely with individuals and families with high net worth for over 14 years.

Jennifer is from Spokane but has also lived in Hawaii, Italy, Greece and Maryland. She has two sons, plays three musical instruments and speaks Italian.
