Seattle Foundation and professional advisors create the perfect partnership

Attorneys, wealth managers and accountants are often the first people consulted when a person is ready to think about philanthropy.  Seattle Foundation recognizes that trusted professional advisors are a valuable source of information and counsel on strategies for both lifetime and legacy giving. We help advisors identify the best solutions for clients, from establishing a Family Foundation or Community Philanthropy Fund, to providing strategic counsel or back office support to private foundations, to integrating philanthropy into an estate plan. 


With support from of an experienced Philanthropic Advisor, your clients can realize the nexus of their values, interests and wealth with proven philanthropic strategies that deliver measurable community impact.  Our effective philanthropic advising, deep community knowledge, powerful civic leadership and judicious stewardship of assets empower philanthropists to create change in the causes that matter to them most.
