About the webinar... 

Community Foundations Can Assist You in Serving Your Clients


Community Foundations are an integral tool for you as you work with your clients on their philanthropic choices and commitments. They can provide you solutions as you navigate talking about philanthropy with your clients without recommending one charity over another.


Community Foundations strengthen regions by encouraging and supporting effective giving and by providing leadership on critical issues in communities. Learn how they can be your partner in serving your clients and understanding your clients’ philanthropic desires.
