Our Professional Advisor Forums - The Long Island Community Foundation

Our Professional Advisor Forums

Every Spring and Fall, LICF along with the Greentree Foundation in Manhasset, the Long Island Community Foundation organizes CPE and CLE accredited, educational forums for professional advisors that regularly work with us and promote charitable giving. These professionals including lawyers, accountants and financial advisors, can then talk to their clients about the best way to give back to the community – through LICF.
