Professional Advisor Network

The Syracuse University Professional Advisor Network (PAN) brings together professional individuals for learning, to promote philanthropy and help clients achieve their philanthropic goals. We work with professional advisors including lawyers, accountants, financial advisors and insurance professionals who serve individuals, corporations and nonprofits. We offer the opportunity to increase knowledge about philanthropy, network online and in person, co-host gatherings for colleagues and clients, attend SU events and co-present to alumni.

Our PAN has four primary goals:

  1. Meet like-minded professionals to exchange ideas and information
  2. Develop a deeper understanding of philanthropy and the role it can play in an advisor's practice
  3. Establish win-win relationships across the country and throughout the world
  4. Provide SU donors with reliable, easy-to-use tools and resources to help them make informed decisions regarding their estate and financial plans

Together with our Advisors, we ensure SU donors make the best decisions for themselves, for their families and for optimizing their impact at SU and across the country.
