The American spirit has always been generous with neighbor helping neighbor to uplift entire communities. To protect and propel this generosity, the Roundtable offers convenings, resources and advice to the philanthropic community on how we can strengthen local civil society, bolster direct social service and support individuals, families and communities.
Our team fosters meaningful relationships among donors who are interested in advancing liberty, opportunity and personal responsibility by strengthening local communities. We offer strategic advising and opportunities to collaborate with influential peers that help our most generous donors achieve their philanthropic goals and advance their values through effective charitable giving. Our focus areas include: Poverty Alleviation, Health & Mental Health, and Faith & Family Institutions.
Family & Faith InstitutionsWe support philanthropists who recognize that family and faith are vital building blocks for a strong community. We work to connect funders with organizations that support strong families and aid children in need.
Health & Mental HealthWe support philanthropists committed to fostering health in local communities. We work to connect funders with organizations that provide vulnerable populations access to care. We pay special interest to mental health efforts and community-based health reform.
Poverty AlleviationWe support philanthropists working to alleviate poverty through community-based and faith-based approaches. Though poverty is primarily defined by lack of physical resources, the nuanced contributing factors of poverty include multiple, often interlinked causes.
