For Professional Advisers

Community foundations have earned the trust of thousands of professional advisers throughout the United States. Here’s why: We work through you. You stay in control of your client relationships; we’re here to help you serve your clients’ charitable giving needs. We partner with you. We provide support, information, and expertise related to charitable giving options. We help you build stronger relationships. Studies show that many high net worth individuals are expecting to talk about giving as they make financial plans with their advisers. They will appreciate the charitable impact and tax advantages you help them achieve by working with a community foundation. We help you connect across generations. When you help families establish Donor Advised Funds at their community foundation, you begin an ongoing process of involvement with current and future generations.
