Lay the foundation for your family’s legacy. Our team and tools help you and your loved ones come together to craft a giving strategy that feels impactful—not transactional.
Our Philanthropic Advisors are seasoned at facilitating meetings for families of all ages and stages of life. Our unique toolkit includes a workbook of exercises, practical tips, and family activities.
Manage complex family transitions such as marriage, retirement, births, or deaths. We’ll help you transform tricky conversations about money into opportunities to explore family values and give through generations.
We’ll guide you in determining budgets, roles, and responsibilities to keep your giving plans on track. We also offer intensive, tailored support for private foundations.
Our flexible, hands-on approach allows you to tailor a plan that works for your family. We focus on four key areas of charitable giving:
would you like to join at your giving table?
do you give?
are your charitable goals?
do you want to make an impact?
