The Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan values the work of the professional advisors in our communities. Your expertise gives people peace of mind and helps benefit their future, the future of their heirs, and in many cases, the future of the communities they love.

Among the many advantages of working with us, the Community Foundation for Northeast Michigan and its affiliates offer the professional advisor:

We help you build stronger relationships
We work through you. You stay in control of your client relationships; we're here to help you serve your clients' charitable giving needs. We partner with you. We provide support, information, and expertise around charitable giving options; think of us as your personal planned giving center. We help you build stronger relationships. Your clients will appreciate the charitable impact and tax advantages you help them achieve by working with a community foundation. We help you connect across generations.
