Professional Advisors 

We make philanthropy simple, powerful and effective

Clients expect professional advisors to provide the same level of expert advice about philanthropy as they do regarding estate planning, trust or financial services. Recent research shows that clients expect their advisors to bring up charitable giving as part of the planning conversation.  When talking with a client about the sale of a business, closely held stock, an inheritance, or other complex transactions, advisors often suggest philanthropy as a solution. The Jackson Community Foundation can help facilitate these matters.  Many Jackson philanthropists recommend the Community Foundation as the best choice because of our experienced staff, range of giving options, capacity to accept complicated assets and deep community knowledge.
