Professional Advisor Recognition Society Spotlight on Danielle M. Cruttenden, McNamee Hosea

Danielle M. Cruttenden receives Professional Advisors Recognition Society Award at the 2023 Celebration of Philanthropy from Mary Spencer, CFAAC President & CEO

At the 2023 Celebration of Philanthropy, Danielle M. Cruttenden was among the four new members inducted into The Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County's 2023 Professional Advisors Recognition Society.

To Danielle, giving back means that she is being a responsible member of her community by supporting the needs of individuals and causes she cares about. Caring and sincere, Danielle takes a very personal approach when representing her clients. Her goal is to become a trusted confidante and the person her clients go to when solving the problems they cannot solve alone. She partners with CFAAC to assist clients with their charitable giving wishes.

“When working with CFAAC, I can count on a professional team to work intimately with clients to assist them with their charitable giving wishes,” said Danielle. “The experience is more satisfying to my clients as compared to working with a large ‘corporate’ charity. Most of my clients live in the Anne Arundel County community and already have connections to the local charities. They like to see the benefit of their giving and so giving to the local charities allows them to see that.”

Danielle has been a Principal at McNamee Hosea for more than eight years. Formerly, she was a Principal at Merrill, Cruttenden & Collinson, P.A. Since 1991, Danielle has focused her practice on estate planning and estate and trust administration, helping her clients develop estate plans that address their unique needs. Danielle has served as Past Chair of the Estates and Trusts Section Council. As a member of the Section Council, Danielle planned educational programs for the Maryland Estates and Trusts Bar and previously served as Co-Chair of the Section's Study Group. Danielle has also served as the legislative Chair of the Estate and Trust Law Section and was actively involved in drafting and passing laws impacting the areas of probate, estate planning, and trust administration.
