Strong Communities

Our Work

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 Institutions

    Faith and family are vital building blocks for a strong community that supports vulnerable populations. We help donors find the best organizations strengthening their communities.
  • Health & Mental Health

    Health problems, including mental illness and addiction, lead to the breakdown of families and communities. We assist donors who want to support programs that provide care to those in need.
  • Poverty Alleviation

    Many common approaches to alleviating poverty fail because they don’t address root causes. We work with donors who seek new and innovative approaches to help people improve their lives and become self-sufficient.
