Full service philanthropy
Double down on impact, not infrastructure.
For clients with significant and complex philanthropic operations, we manage multiple aspects of their philanthropic activity – serving essentially as a virtual foundation or virtual program area.
how we help with full service philanthropy
We provide an end-to-end solution that covers all foundation functions and activities, delivering strong programmatic and operational results at a fraction of the cost and time required to operationalize, manage, and govern a staffed foundation.
Virtual Program Area
Clients can outsource to us the design, launch, and management of key program areas. We help develop strategy, identify partners and grantees, deploy a range of philanthropic tools, and track results – obviating the need to hire additional staff.
