“They were great thought partners and developed a strong rapport with our board and staff”
We engaged Kyle and Jeff to support us in a significant update to the Foundation’s strategic plan. I knew Kyle from partnering with the Walton Family Foundation when he was there. We worked with Kyle and Jeff for the better part of a year. Their involvement added value in many ways. They helped raise our ambitions for the plan and process and encouraged us to go much farther in engaging partners and stakeholders in the effort. They also helped us engage our board more significantly and effectively. They were great thought partners and developed a strong rapport with our board and staff. Kyle and Jeff were highly-responsive throughout the effort. We relied heavily on the two of them and benefitted greatly from their involvement. It was a very successful collaboration.

“Remarkable ability to grasp complex problems, articulate clear and actionable solutions”
I’ve known Kyle since his tenure at FSG, where he was a leader in building the organization that Mark Kramer and I founded 20 years ago. Kyle has a remarkable ability to grasp complex problems, from community development to health care, understand the root causes of what is not working for people or communities, and articulate clear and actionable solutions that cut across sectors. Kyle worked with me on a series of important studies and projects that have helped shift mindsets and actions of companies, funders, and NGOs. I wish him great success on his new venture as he continues to support multi-sector actors for social change.

“A new source of inspiration and skilled guidance”
Today, foundations and those with resources need to do more to tackle the massive inequities facing so many people in our country and around the world. That’s why I’m thrilled to see Kyle, who I’ve known for many years and as a fellow Board member of FSG, launch Boldly Go Philanthropy, a new source of inspiration and skilled guidance to help turn philanthropic passion into results for the betterment of society and the planet.
