Welcome Professional Advisors

 As a professional advisor, you are often the first and most important source of information for people interested in planned giving or in creating a substantial charitable legacy.  Since 1987, we have helped local donors and their professional advisors find solutions to make the most of their generosity.  As one of the larger grantmakers in the Hastings area, we are knowledgeable about the mission and needs of many local organizations, and can help your clients with the causes they care about most today and in perpetuity.

Estate planners, financial planners, and other professional advisors are often faced with a delicate dilemma: You want to discuss the many benefits of charitable giving with your clients, but you want to avoid recommending specific charitable causes or organizations.

Fortunately, there’s a simple solution. The Hastings Community Foundation provides a “one stop shop!” The Foundation is a single, trusted vehicle your clients can use to address the issues they care about most, while gaining maximum tax benefits allowable by law. We offer a variety of giving options—including the ability to set up a charitable fund in your client’s name. It’s just one way we can help you help your clients achieve their charitable goals.
