How we work with you

Working together, we identify your values and interests, evaluate your philanthropic budget and discuss your goals for involving successive generations. Using our expertise and deep knowledge of the community, we devise a giving plan that is personally rewarding, targeted and measurable.

Individual Giving

Giving to a cause you believe in brings tremendous satisfaction and the reward of knowing you are making an impact in areas of critical community need. Make a personal commitment to your area of interest by opening a fund now or making a strategic plan for future giving.
