Professional Advisors Council

The Community Foundation's Professional Advisors Council consists of leading attorneys, CPAs, financial planners and advisors, and other professionals.

Members of the Community Foundation's Professional Advisors Council share their expertise on how to effectively integrate philanthropy into conversations with clients and peers.  The council also advises the Community Foundation about the changing needs of professional advisors and helps broaden the circle of advisors and clients who work with the Community Foundation. As a result, we help connect more donors with community needs.
