Professional Advisory Board

The Catholic Community Foundation builds strong communities by helping donors achieve their charitable goals. We are a leader, a catalyst and a resource for Catholic philanthropy. A vital resource for the Foundation is the Professional Advisory Board, which consists of estate planning attorneys, trust officers, CPAs, insurance agents and financial advisors. These advisors provide counsel and expertise to the Foundation as we work together to strengthen our Catholic community by helping donors achieve their charitable goals.

Members meet quarterly to communicate new ideas in charitable giving, learn about emerging issues in the financial and philanthropic sector and build fellowship among their peers. The Foundation is grateful to have the following motivated, qualified and charitable-minded professional advisors who help us to fulfill our mission: “to carry on the work of Christ by fostering philanthropy.”
