Professional Advisors


The Pottawattamie County Community Foundation works closely with professional advisors (attorneys, accountants, financial planners, bankers, and life insurance representatives) to help their clients realize their charitable objectives and personal interests. The Pottawattamie County Community Foundation helps to integrate charitable giving within estate and financial plans, facilitate anonymous giving, and assist with complex gift instruments. 

As a professional advisor do you ask yourself, "How can I recommend a charity without recommending a charity?" The answer is simple. Talk to your clients about giving through the Pottawattamie County Community Foundation. Estate planners, financial planners, and other professional advisors are often faced with a delicate dilemma: 

You want to discuss the many benefits of charitable giving with your clients, but you want to avoid recommending specific charitable causes or organizations. 

Fortunately, there is a simple solution. It's your local community foundation, the Pottawattamie County Community Foundation. A community foundation is a single, trusted vehicle your clients can use to address the issues they care about most, while gaining maximum tax benefit under state and federal law. We offer a variety of giving options - including the ability to set up a charitable fund in your client's name. This is just one way we can help your clients achieve their charitable goals. 

There is so much more we would like for you to know. We invite you to contact us and to download our fund options brochure. We look forward to working with you to help your clients achieve their charitable giving goals.
