Professional Advisors Circle (PAC)

For many years, Horizons Foundation has worked closely with financial advisors, estate planning attorneys, and other professional advisors to strengthen their practices with LGBT clients and promote charitable giving in the LGBT community.

The foundation’s work in this area is led by Horizons’ Professional Advisors Circle (PAC), a dedicated community of advisors who provide financial planning and legal, tax, real estate, and insurance services, and are experienced in meeting the needs of LGBT clients.

The goals of the PAC are to:

  • Provide outstanding educational opportunities for LGBT and ally professional advisors
  • Develop a strong network to enhance practice management among LGBT and ally professional advisors
  • Support the LGBT community and Horizons Foundation
