What I enjoy most when working with a partner
Philanthropy is a deeply democratic exercise, and the passion that people bring to a cause they have chosen is inspiring. I’ve been fortunate to travel around the world and see the incredible impact that each person and each organization can make. It is particularly rewarding to bring seemingly disparate groups together to form creative partnerships. And it is a joy to celebrate with an organization that has reached a goal that may once have seemed impossible.
Our consultants offer years of experience with the expertise and talent needed to create effective strategies for engaging philanthropists in productive, rewarding ways.
