A powerful partnership with

respected advisors.

Our Professional Advisor Leadership Council (PALC) includes professionals in the areas of estate planning, accounting, investment, insurance, and financial services.

Members are among the most accomplished practitioners in their respective fields. They meet several times each year to learn more about the community, CICF and its services for advisors and clients.

PALC members enhance their knowledge of charitable giving, CICF and the impact CICF donors have on Central Indiana and beyond. Nominated by their peers, members serve rotating three-year terms.

Former PALC members remain connected by serving on CICF’s Cornerstone Council.
