Dallas Foundation Partners with Communities Foundation of Texas to sponsor the Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP®) Study Group Program

The Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy (CAP®) Study Group Program provides a collaborative forum that brings professional advisors and nonprofit leaders around the same table to learn about charitable planning and to build lasting professional networks. For nearly a decade this peer-learning experience has empowered participants to be more connected to philanthropic resources and help their clients and donors maximize their community impact.

The Dallas Foundation and Communities Foundation of Texas administer the program in North Texas, which works to equip financial planners, CPAs, estate attorneys, insurance professionals, and nonprofit development and gift planners with philanthropic planning concepts, while enhancing their listening skills and building a strong network throughout our region.

CAP® Study Group Details:

The ten-month study group program will run from October 11, 2021, to May 16, 2022 to support professional advisor candidates who are enrolled in the graduate-level CAP® program offered by The American College of Financial Services. There are no fees to join the study group and enrollment is limited.
