Professional Advisors Council

The Professional Advisors Council of the Community Foundation of Broward is composed of legal, wealth management, accounting and insurance professionals who work with the Community Foundation to help their clients achieve philanthropic goals. Membership is by invitation only and exclusive to professionals who have successfully referred a client to the Community Foundation.

Members share their expertise with fellow professional advisors on how to effectively integrate philanthropy into conversations with clients. The Council also advises the Foundation about the changing needs of professional advisors and helps broaden the circle of advisors who recommend the Foundation to their clients. As a result, we help all of Broward County by connecting donor visions with community needs.

Through the Council, professional advisors attend education sessions, receive monthly updates about Foundation activities and philanthropic services, receive special reports and are featured in Foundation publications.

These are just some of the opportunities for Professional Advisors Council members, who help the Foundation build a stronger community. In return, the Foundation helps advisors accomplish their clients’ philanthropy goals, which deepens the relationships between clients and advisors.

To learn more, contact the Foundation at 954.761.9503.  Together, we can make Broward County an even better place to live.
