Over that time, much has changed and I’ve gained practical experience and learned valuable lessons within this very special niche. The field of strategic philanthropy is more sophisticated and complex…

As an individual, family, business or foundation making philanthropic decisions – or a trusted advisor to these groups – you face many questions:

  • How can we most effectively transform our community, our country or our world?
  • What are we hoping to achieve for ourselves in the process?
  • Do we have a strategy to achieve our internal and external goals?
  • Which nonprofit organizations can best help us achieve our mission?
  • How do we decide how much to give?
  • How do we evaluate the impact of our giving?
  • How do we align our philanthropic capital with our mission?
  • How can we engage the rising generations in our family or business philanthropy?
  • How do we take our foundation to the next level?

We will work closely with you to design, implement, manage and evaluate your philanthropic initiatives through strategic and actionable plans for yourself, your family, business, or foundation.
