Professional Advisor Leadership Council

Professional advisors play a critical role in the future of philanthropy in our region. Our Professional Advisor Leadership Council (PALC) works closely with the Foundation for MetroWest to advance its mission, while increasing awareness about the needs of the MetroWest community so advisors can better address their clients’ philanthropic goals. Council members include leading professionals from a variety of professions; estate attorneys, accountants, financial planners, wealth advisors, and insurance professionals.

Members of the PALC see the promotion of philanthropy as one of the more meaningful aspects of their practice. Four times a year the PALC hosts educational and social events for the broader MetroWest professional advisor community. These events promote philanthropic conversations between advisors and their clients, while building greater awareness of the Foundation’s mission and philanthropic services.

The PALC meets four times a year to plan the professional advisors’ educational and networking series. View the 2023 meeting schedule.
