Introducing the


Professional Advisors (PAs) — the lawyers, financial planners and accountants who help us navigate through all our personal and business domains, are vital to community philanthropy. Many PAs will raise the topic of planned giving when creating an estate plan. The giving plan may be to the community, an alma mater or the hospice organization that cared for a loved one. PAs help find the best answers to fulfill giving wishes.

To recognize the important role of the PA in bettering the community, Pinellas Community Foundation is pleased to introduce the INSPIRE Award. Since the inception of Pinellas Community Foundation (PCF), the following Professional Advisors have made a significant difference in the lives of others in Pinellas County. They’ve demonstrated their commitment to giving of themselves as well as helping their clients realize their philanthropic aspirations through PCF.

Pinellas Community Foundation is pleased to name Sandra Diamond as the first recipient of the INSPIRE Award for her dedication to strengthening the community by generously giving of herself and assisting her clients in fulfilling their philanthropic passions.
