Incorporating Charity into a Financial Strategy
It’s good business practice to promote and incorporate charitable giving into the financial planning services professional advisors provide. The Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties offers advisors optimal ways to achieve your client’s charitable objectives for the benefit of charities here and nationwide.
For over thirty-five years we have worked in partnership with others to improve the quality of life for all of our area residents, now and for future generations. The considerable assets we devote to this purpose include:
A Place to Learn, Share, and Connect
In 2000 the Community Foundation constructed a 33,000 square foot building in the heart of West Palm Beach to be inclusive of our permanent headquarters, offices for other nonprofit organizations, and space to welcome and enable educational and charitable activities consistent with the Foundation’s mission and purpose. Our vision was to be and provide, in perpetuity, a voice and center of our community’s philanthropy; a physical place where we welcomed donors, professional advisors, nonprofit organizations, business and community leaders to join together, address community issues of shared concern; and promote improved quality of life for our region through the power of charitable giving.
Our facility features, in addition to multiple nonprofit offices, the Eunice and Julian Cohen Courtyard and Fountain, and the Edward and Lee Hill Snowdon Community Rooms and Conference Room.
These spaces serve as a gathering place, where educational, business and networking events can occur in a comfortable environment with all the equipment necessary for well-managed meetings and events (including audio/visual equipment, teleconferencing, wireless Internet access, and a catering kitchen). As a facility for the community, the building was created to embody a philanthropic community of place, purpose, learning and sharing, a place for visitors to gather, discuss, network, contribute, and collaborate, with the Community Foundation serving as a sponsor, resource and facilitator.
