The Professional Advisor Network also provides several continuing education opportunities for members including digital newsletters, annual tax pocket guides, and webinars.

DAF Resources

As your clients develop a philanthropic gift plan, consider the option of a DAF account that gives them the flexibility to support their chosen charities as well as the American Heart Association. This account also gives you the ability to continue your relationship with your client. They can also teach their children about the joy of giving, by involving them in the direction of those grants. Our American Heart Association charitable estate planning advisors can assist you with opening the account or you can create one online.

Estate Settlement

Our estate settlement administrators will help you deal with the documents and details of a client who has passed away and generously included the American Heart Association in their estate plan. We know this is a difficult but important process and our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you, the family and friends.
