Professional Advisory Council

The Catholic Foundation of South Louisiana recognizes the importance of trust when considering your finances and legacy, weather that is through creating your will, filing taxes or considering a complex gift. Our Foundation has a trusted group of partners through our Advisory Council with a variety of different backgrounds to help with any charitable giving need. We are happy to work closely with a donors advisory, however, if you are in in need of a trusted advisor, please consider a member of The Catholic Foundation’s Professional Advisory Council.

The Catholic Foundation’s Professional Advisory Council is a great resource to find an estate planning lawyer, financial planner, insurance professional, accountant or trust officer.
