Professional Advisor Leadership Council

Professional advisors play a critical role in the future of philanthropy in our region. Our Professional Advisor Leadership Council (PALC), affiliated with Worthy Circles, works closely with the Foundation for MetroWest to gain a greater understanding of the needs of the MetroWest community so they 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.

Many members of our professional community see the promotion of philanthropy as one of the more meaningful aspects of their practice. Therefore, throughout the year, the Foundation for MetroWest works with PALC members to promote and encourage philanthropic conversations between advisors and their clients, and to bring awareness to the benefits of making tax advantageous gifts.

The PALC meets monthly for one hour, with two of those meetings being the Foundation’s annual Spring Inspiration Breakfast in May and the Community Leadership Reception in September.
