Philanthropy can be a lonely job, and it can be hard to get the impartial information you need to maximize the impact of your giving. We offer one-on-one coaching and personalized consulting services that help you realize the full rewards of philanthropic giving.

Philanthropy Associates can serve as “temporary staff” for individuals. We provide professional, impartial, confidential program and process advice based on over two decades of research, analysis and experience — so that you can make gifts with the same confidence as the director of a large foundation.

For foundations with few staff members, Philanthropy Associates helps key individuals identify and resolve many of the challenges faced by solo decision-makers. For those looking to add their first staff members, Philanthropy Associates helps design and implement a transition plan that increases involvement of others while preserving donor influence and values.

If you feel “on your own,” our expert personal philanthropic coaches will help you. Please contact us to create a deeply satisfying philanthropic plan that connects you to other like-minded donors.
