Partners South Offers A Hand-Up

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL, Eleven locations nationwide, powered by more than 250 advisors, each with a genuine compassion to care for others, is the driving force behind the Partners South Estate Planning, Inc. mission to provide a “hand-up” for people in need. A life-long philanthropist, Timothy Fussell, PhD, Founder and CEO, began the company more than 30 years ago with a mission of putting others before self.

“This company was built on helping small business owners prosper in times both good and bad”, he said. “Over the last three-plus decades, our core values and commitment to our clients and the communities we serve has never faltered – with great blessings come even greater responsibilities and we remain true to our mission today”.

D. Clinton Perkins, MPA, Community Affairs Coordinator for Broward Health, a leader in community healthcare, consults with Dr. Fussell on how best to continue to meet the changing charitable needs of the many communities Partners South serves. “The financial health of our communities is an important component of the overall well-being of its residents”, Perkins said. “The advisors at Partners South have a unique opportunity to generously give year-round in so many ways, helping small business and individuals improve their circumstances on a short and long-term basis”, he added.

Most recently, Dr. Fussell and Mr. Perkins attended the 20th Annual Jeb Bush Florida Classic in support of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Over the last 20 years, the event has raised more than $7.5 million making it one of the largest for the CF Foundation’s South Florida Office. In addition to local events, Dr. Fussell supports churches and other charities in communities where Partners South operates. Three years ago, Dr. Fussell personally took on the responsibility of sponsoring a family from Bangladesh.

Coming from humble beginnings in the heart of North Carolina, Fussell remembers and appreciates how compassion and true caring for others makes a difference in peoples’ lives and works to this day to do his part to help care for those in need. From families with special needs children to people who need help in other ways, the advisors at Partners South are open-hearted and generous in their offerings.
