Professional Advisors

We can help your clients simplify their giving and give wherever their interests lie, locally and nationally. Your clients can open a fund at WCF with a single tax-deductible contribution. We then manage and invest the fund and help them direct grants to nonprofits at their own pace. When they are ready, we are here to provide personalized support and customized research on local and regional nonprofits. 



Your clients can start a fund with a gift of cash or stock. We can also help them donate other non-cash assets, unusual gifts, and those seeking to convert a private foundation. As a division of the New York Community Trust, we work closely with staff and General Counsel at the Trust to help you help your clients develop their philanthropic legacy.

We share your client's passion for doing good, better. We provide a boutique-style, personalized approach to make it simple and efficient for your clients to broaden their philanthropy. 


Our educational programs on community issues offer ongoing opportunities for donors and their families to become involved.

When your client endows a fund using a charitable bequest at the Westchester Community Foundation, they are creating a permanent legacy that will never stop giving. We preserve the principal of the bequest and honor your client's charitable intentions by finding the best and most effective charities to fund. As part of Westchester's community endowment, a bequest grows over time into a powerful tool for doing good in our community.
