Professional Advisors

For over a dozen years, we have partnered closely with professional advisors—attorneys, CPAs, financial planners, trust officers and insurance agents—to carry out their clients’ charitable goals.

As a professional advisor, your clients rely on your expertise and experience to guide their financial decisions. As a trusted advisor, you want to provide them with advice and resources to meet all their goals, including charitable giving.

About the Foundation

When Your Client Wants You To Manage Their Charitable Dollars

Certain Community Foundation charitable funds can be managed by independent money managers

The Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts recognizes that financial planners and investment managers have developed trusted and valued relationships with their clients. When an individual, family, nonprofit or company establishes a substantial fund at the Community Foundation of North Central Massachusetts, there is an opportunity for their investment advisor to continue managing the portfolio.

  • Financial Managers and Investment Managers can help their clients achieve their charitable goals—while maintaining the assets in their practice.
  • Your client is able to take advantage of the foundation’s grantmaking expertise and client portal to manage their charitable giving without changing investment advisors.
  • It eliminates the need and costly expense of setting up and maintaining a private foundation, which can be a never-ending ordeal.
  • Personalized giving. The community foundation helps donors and their advisors structure a charitable fund to satisfy specific charitable goals and tax planning objectives.
