How We Work
We work for you. We are paid only by you. We do not represent non-profits, financial advisors, attorneys, insurance agents or CPAs. We do not sell products or hold funds.
Based on the Scope of Work, your fee is based on a retainer schedule that is mutually agreeable and paid in advance of the work.
Getting to know you and what you wish to accomplish and why are our strong suits. We know the tools and techniques to get it done. And when we don’t, we scout the best talent to work with us.
You decide how much you can or should give. We do not judge. We are here to help you evolve into philanthropy at a pace and style that is best suited to you.
You will engage in a thoughtful exploration of why you are embarking on this journey. It delves into family history and values, attitudes about money, and your interests, aspirations and concerns.
You will receive a personalized Giving Plan that will serve as your family’s guide to giving—complete with mission statement, focus areas, estate planning instructions (if desired) and a plan for future giving.
Give with Clarity and Confidence
Our process will help you move from reactionary giving to purposeful giving. We may work together for several months or several years. Regardless, our aim is to create an army of thoughtful philanthropists dedicated to making the world a better place humility, clarity, and compassion.
