Attorneys, accountants, financial planners, and insurance agents partner with Central Carolina
Community Foundation to guide clients in the charitable giving process. These professionals help
navigate the forces of growing personal wealth and the desire to help make a difference.

The Foundation recognizes advisors who have been instrumental in establishing new funds at the
Foundation for their clients, for themselves, and for their firms through the “Champions of Philanthropy
Society.” Together, we have helped hundreds of individuals, families, and businesses establish
charitable giving funds.
