The Baltimore Community Foundation (BCF) welcomed two new members into its Professional Advisor Recognition Society during a ceremony today. The 2019 inductees are Christina Snyder and Robert Young.  

The Professional Advisor Recognition Society honors legal and financial advisors who actively promote philanthropy in their practice.  Advisors play a key role in educating their clients about charitable giving and through that work, they create a positive impact in their communities. 

“The Professional Advisor Recognition Society is BCF’s way of recognizing professional advisors who are committed to philanthropy and charitable giving across Baltimore,” said Shanaysha Sauls, BCF President and CEO. “The Society is made up of an amazing group of people and we are proud to work so closely with them, as well as all the advisors who give referrals and support their clients in discussions of charitable giving throughout the year. Christina Snyder and Robert Young each contribute their talents as trusted financial and legal advisors, all while planting the seed of change with their clients by incorporating charitable giving into their practices.”
