At Cobb Community Foundation (CCF), we believe that charitable giving done well can create a lasting impact. We created our Professional Advisors Network (PAN) to bring together professionals who help their clients with their charitable giving. Through the sharing of ideas, expertise and experiences, giving done well is done even better, and for the community, the client, the client’s family, even for the advisor, its impact is magnified.
