We can provide you with information and resources to start the conversation about charitable giving options with your clients. By joining with us as your trusted partner in philanthropy, your clients can create a lasting legacy in the community they love.

Professional Advisory Board

Our partnerships with professional advisors have been helping community members fulfill their charitable goals for decades! That’s why we created our Professional Advisory Board in 2014. They provide strategic planning, guidance, and serve as liaisons to our entire network of advisors. The board includes a diverse group of advisors, from estate planning attorneys to CPAs to financial planners.
