We are independent philanthropy advisors and educators; we help with strategies of your grantmaking. How much money you have or don't have is not relevant - but helping you make wise choices is. And, to clarify something which seems to befuddle people: We do NO fundraising; we only work with those who give money, not those who are hoping to raise it.

He continues as one of the faculty in the oldest and most comprehensive university program exclusively for philanthropists and foundation professionals.

Specialties: Helping funders with strategies - esp in times of change; partnerships; venture philanthropy; multi-generational philanthropy and succession issues; exit strategies; foundation policy review; foundation retreats and workshops. I also have worked with a number of wealth management groups to help them with philanthropy expertise for their clients.

Short-term interim executive roles during times of foundation transitions.
