Advisor Circle

The Community Foundation recognizes and appreciates the important work of all professional advisors. We extend our gratitude for the vital role they play in making their clients’ philanthropic goals a reality and in helping connect people who care with causes that matter.

Members of the Community Foundation's Advisor Circle serve their clients through inspired legacy planning. Membership is by invitation. Each professional advisor in this elite group has been instrumental in helping one or more of their clients make a gift of $1 million or more to the Community Foundation.

We appreciate their leadership and vision.
