We have done the research, identified motivated changemakers, and will connect you with the causes you hold most dear. Let us help you empower local nonprofits to do what they do best.

Consult with our expert team to discover how your giving can make a difference while benefiting your bottom line. Discover how you can unlock the power of tax-efficient philanthropy.

We can guide your grantmaking using trust-based philanthropic principles in support of any community cause including scholarships.

We take great care to invest your funds wisely, transparently and prudently, so they will grow over time and be available for grantmaking now and for generations to come. The cornerstone of our investment strategy is the preservation of capital. This allows funds are to be available for the community, regardless of market performance.
