Sydney Community Foundation has a relationship with a growing network of accountants, chartered accountants, lawyers, estate planners and financial planners to support the growth of philanthropy in Sydney.

We also educate professional advisors about how giving to Sydney Community Foundation can provide a strategic giving structure for their clients.

Sydney Community Foundation runs events each year in its New Philanthropist Series on topics of interest to both advisors and potential donors.
