We provide customized, highly strategic services to ensure that our clients get exactly what they need – when they need it.

We offer a wide variety of services, including help starting a new foundation or fund, coaching for individual donors, families and staff members, and design, management and evaluation of complex philanthropic programs.

Our clients range from individual donors to some of the largest foundations in the world. Our aim is ensure that our clients achieve their philanthropic goals as efficiently and effectively as possible – while enjoying the process along the way (please click on our List of Clients for more information).
