Cornerstone Council

In order to better serve you, your clients, and existing donors, the Greater New Orleans Foundation created the Cornerstone Council, a forum of regional professional advisors. Members — including accountants, lawyers, investment managers, and financial partners and advisors — help us gather and disseminate knowledge, perceptions, and input from experts in the field of estate and financial planning.  Membership on the GNOF Cornerstone Council provides invaluable educational and networking opportunities among an elite group of professional advisors as well as immediate access to a breadth of philanthropic resources and expertise.
