Founded by the Southwest Florida Estate Planning Council, we believe in empowering the professionals who work to help donors make a difference.
One way the Community Foundation of Sarasota County recognizes the efforts of area professional advisors (PAs) is by hosting our annual Distinguished Speaker Series, a signature series of educational lectures provided to our community’s PAs, enabling them to earn advanced education credits. These events are a partnership of our Community Foundation, Manatee Community Foundation and the Lakewood Ranch Community Fund, with generous sponsorship by area banks.
