Since its inception, GCF has had the privilege of working with many professionals, including estate planners, financial advisors, insurance professionals and others, who connect their charitably-inclined clients with GCF’s resources. Our professional advisory community supports the Foundation through its participation on volunteer committees, as well as in their work with their clients on charitable gift planning. In any given year as much as two-thirds of GCF's new business comes through the referral of a trusted professional advisor.
In 2009, GCF created the Bridge Builder Award, to be given each year to a professional advisor who has been a supporter of the Foundation in multiple ways over many years.
