Key to Philanthropy - About the Celebration of Philanthropy

East Tennessee Foundation recognizes that professional advisors are the keys to philanthropy. Whether you are an attorney, an accountant, a funeral director, a financial planner, or an insurance agent, you have the power to open the door for your client to realize their philanthropic goals. ETF could not fulfill its mission to make communities stronger and lives better in East Tennessee without the help of capable professional advisors.

The staff of East Tennessee Foundation are so grateful to partner with the professional advisors of East Tennessee on a daily basis. Our fundholders are also grateful for the guidance, knowledge, and expertise of their advisors. Every other year, ETF invites its fundholders to honor the professional advisors of East Tennessee with the Celebration of Philanthropy. At every celebration, ETF also acknowledges one particular advisor who has served clients by unlocking the door to East Tennessee Foundation and presents to them the Key to Philanthropy Award.
