An experienced team with a bird’s-eye view

Your clients have dreams and resources, but their time is precious. They want to invest in causes they care about, but may not know which programs are most effective, most neededor most likely to be around in 20 years. We conduct more than 200 site visits annually with local charities. As a result, we know where there are gaps, opportunities, urgent needs, looming issues, new ideas and great leaders. 

“The Foundation is a terrific resource for local families that want to give back, as well as for their advisors.”
