Professional Advisors

As a professional advisor, you have an opportunity to help your clients achieve their family, estate and charitable goals as effectively as possible. The Community Foundation of Abilene is here to help. For nearly 30 years, we’ve earned a stellar reputation for integrity and service to donors and their professional advisors.

As a community foundation, we provide a vehicle through which individuals, families and companies can make gifts—immediate or deferred—to establish charitable funds that benefit the community. The Foundation is permanent and flexible—assuring donors that the spirit of their philanthropy will endure.

We look forward to working with you to structure your clients’ charitable giving to achieve optimal results. We can help you by providing materials about the Foundation and various ways to give. We want to help you achieve your clients’ charitable goals.


The Foundation offers a great deal of flexibility so that your family can design a fund that carries out your goals. A “Field of Interest” fund provides a means for donors to select a broad focus, such as arts, education, youth services, etc. for their support. Grants will be awarded to support the purposes and causes the donors have described.
