Our Values

 

TRUST

Trust is at the center of how we engage with our clients and community partners. We strive to be trusted partners and uphold the strongest code of ethics and confidentiality in all matters. We believe that trust-based philanthropy evolves through authentic relationship-building and embodies the highest level of philanthropy.

THE HEART OF THE MATTER

We are passionate about learning & inquiry to get to the heart of the matter so that all involved have the best possible experience and impact. We practice deep listening and engage in rigorous research, assessment, and evaluation at every stage of our process.

COMMUNITY-CENTERED PHILANTHROPY

Community members and those closest to the most pressing challenges in their community are best suited & know best how to address complex challenges in their own communities. We honor this knowledge and are committed to work alongside local community leaders and members to support their vision.

EQUITY

We believe that all have the right to live fully without discrimination, and in fair and just inclusion in a society, in which all can prosper and reach their full potential. Equity is the ethos of our work, why we do what we do.

JOYFUL PURPOSE

With increasingly complex challenges and polarizing views, it can be difficult to find calm and joy amidst the chaos. Finding how you best fit and thrive in this ecosystem takes time. Each individual, family and foundation will have a unique experience and our goal is to ensure you find a path that brings joyful purpose to your life.
