The Westchester Community Foundation has launched its Professional Advisory Council, a group of leading professional advisors dedicated to promoting philanthropy in Westchester. The council will work with professional advisors to help them be better prepared to talk with their clients about philanthropy. “Professional advisors play an important role in assisting their clients with their philanthropy and charitable giving,” notes Kathy N.
