Increasing your impact.
We help foundations deploy bold and innovative approaches to achieve transformational change.
HOW WE HELP foundations
Donors and trustees want high impact and low friction. That’s where we come in. We specialize in helping leanly-staffed foundations punch above their weight. In some cases, we provide extra capacity to manage grants, structure impact investments, or expand program areas. In other cases, we manage a full program area, multiple program areas, signature initiatives, collaboratives, or targeted funds. Foundations also call upon us to help them work through governance and strategy issues or approaches to build movements and impact policy.
WE HELP FOUNDATIONS MAKE BIG DECISIONS, DEPLOY INNOVATIVE STRATEGIES, AND CRAFT ROBUST PORTFOLIOS OF GRANTS, IMPACT INVESTMENTS, AND INITIATIVES.
We have worked with all types of foundations in all corners of the globe – small and large, independent and family, urban and rural, proactive and responsive, place or issue-based, and general purpose. And we have run foundations. We understand that every foundation is unique, so we put a focus on donor intent and values, clear and differentiated strategies, and high-impact philanthropic investments.
