Charitable giving strategy
In Hillsboro, Wisconsin the Slama family is well known. Don Slama, head of the family, now leads the second-generation business that was started by his father Fritz Slama. The family business is diverse as they own Hillsboro Equipment, Mauston Equipment, Slama’s Lawn & Sport, Slama Enterprises, Slama Commercial Properties and Slama Farms.
“We value the deep knowledge SVA has for each of the businesses we own,” states Don Slama. “Because we are a highly diversified company, SVA’s ability to understand all the nuances of each business and provide strategic direction has been instrumental in our success.”
The Slama family appreciates the hands-on approach and onsite visits from the SVA team. Their companies have grown significantly over the years and as they continue to plan for future growth. “When we are buying or selling properties, SVA is there to ensure that transactions are structured to maximize our tax benefits and profits, ” says Don, in reference to SVA's real estate transaction structuring services. “They are readily available to provide the advice we need, when we need it.” Sally Kraemer, Administrative Assistant, and James Taylor, General Manager, appreciate the efficiency of working with SVA. “We know what SVA needs from us and the transfer of data electronically is seamless which minimizes our time commitment,” stated Sally.
“I enjoy giving back to the community. SVA has helped us orchestrate charitable contributions in a way that maximizes donations, while minimizing tax burdens,” states Don. From corn to combines to real estate, SVA provides consulting and tax advice year-round. While not a family member, SVA is a strategic business partner for the Slama family.
