HighGround Advisors


Your mission is important. Our mission is to serve yours.

Since 1930, HighGround Advisors has been committed to protecting, strengthening and growing the missions of our nonprofit clients through our comprehensive services in investment and asset management, charitable gift planning, and matters unique to tax-exempt organizations and the individuals who support them.




The National Gift Annuity Foundation, a subsidiary of the Dechomai Foundation, provides CGA outsourcing for gift acceptance, contract issue, gift management and administration. We are the largest independent platfrom for issuing gift annuities in the U.S. We accept the payment risk on your behalf. And, we return 100% of the remainder to the donor's intended charity.

The Dechomai Foundation’s sole purpose is to help charitable organizations like yours receive non-cash donations – donations that your charity might not otherwise be able to accept. Many of these illiquid assets can be used to fund a gift annuity.

We manage the entire process – from receiving the non-cash asset to managing and liquidating the asset to finally granting the net proceeds to the charity recommended by the donor, or funding a CGA to provide payments to your donors for their lifetimes.

We have extensive experience in accepting commercial and residential real estate, many types of limited partnerships, closely-held stock, restricted stock, S-Corp stock, life insurance, notes, seats on financial exchanges and other unusual assets – all subject to Board approval, of course. Since our inception in 2003, we have accepted and managed over $1.4 billion in assets.
