“You wanna do what?”  was a frequent response in the early days at McDaniel Knutson Financial Partners as they talked about the company’s philanthropic giving.  Peter Knutson shares the lessons he’s learned and the difference it’s made at their company because of their commitment to do philanthropy off the “top line.”  He talks about the power of leveraging and the way intentional generosity can become a part of the way any business does business if they will take the first step.

Pete graduated from Baylor University in 1993 with degrees in Real Estate and Financial Planning. He is a Certified Financial Planner practitioner and serves on several philanthropic boards and committees.  He is currently President and part owner of McDaniel Knutson Financial Partners in Lawrence whose mission statement is, “Using our knowledge to help our clients live and to give.”
