Who We Serve

Families and Individuals

We know your philanthropy is an expression of your personal and family values. We work with individuals and families to create customized giving plans that support the unique needs of each donor, engage multiple generations in the grantmaking process, and ensure a philanthropic legacy.


When done right, philanthropy makes good business sense. We partner with local businesses of all sizes to enhance their social investment, to engage their employees, and to create charitable programs that are designed for maximum community impact.


We respect and value the relationship you have with your clients. We are your trusted partner and resource as you help your clients make effective and educated philanthropic decisions and achieve their unique charitable goals. Learn more.
