Find deep purpose and partnership through philanthropy.
Every individual and family has a unique story that will shape their own philanthropic style and desire to give back, and we are committed to walking alongside you, to support you in your personal exploration, every step of the way.
The landscape of philanthropy is shifting, revealing truths and critical lessons regarding the levers needed for long term, real systems change. Centering justice, racial equity, diversity and inclusivity at every step of the process is the only way to affect lasting positive social change. Understanding your role in this process takes humility, listening, learning, relationship building and embracing trust-based approaches.
You have an opportunity to be a part of this shift, by directing your philanthropic capital in meaningful, just and equitable ways.
We believe everyone has the potential to be extraordinary philanthropists and we recognize, celebrate and embrace the diversity and richness of the multitudes of givers in the world and the various ways in which to give back.
Women & Giving
It has been well researched and documented that women give differently. Women & men demonstrate different patterns, from their motivations to the giving vehicles they choose, to their giving behaviors and the causes they support. We work with you to help you identify what works for you.
Giving Circles provide individuals the opportunity to join a group of others with shared values, and decide how best to contribute their pooled resources while learning together. Whether you are interested in starting your own giving circle, you’d like to get involved in existing giving circles focused on issue areas you are passionate about, or your current giving circle is seeking support to enhance member cohesion, retention and facilitate new ways of granting; we can support your goals.
Engaging in family philanthropy can be a rewarding and satisfying experience for a family. However, it requires a thoughtful, inclusive and well-defined process for this to happen. In many families, personalities, roles, and inner dynamics can make decision-making a sensitive process. As skilled, neutral facilitators, we can help your family reach shared goal-setting and decision-making frameworks that work for all.
