Professional Advisors

Professional advisors are one of the most important groups of stakeholders helping The Community Foundation strengthen the Atlanta region through philanthropy. You and your colleagues refer more than 90 percent of our new donors to The Community Foundation, and we work closely with you to help you serve as your clients’ trusted advisor on charitable planning issues. 
There is a need for those who have wealth to be involved and engaged in their communities and to invest their resources in ways that make a difference. That difference can be made when you as professional advisors see philanthropy as a primary element of the guidance you provide your clients.

In this section of our website, you will find information designed to help you understand how The Community Foundation assists donors in connecting their passion with purpose. You will also find information on the resources and programs we provide for professional advisors to help you work effectively to deepen and expand your client relationships through philanthropy.
