The landscape of philanthropy is changing. The demographics of who gives and what they care about is vastly different than it was 20 or 30 years ago. The dollars that are available for philanthropic investment have increased exponentially and the transfer of that wealth in the coming years is going to a new breed of philanthropists.

Foundations need to keep up with the interests, behaviors and passions of their stakeholders. We can help. Through our Intentional Philanthropic Investments program, we provide tailored expert support and associated tools and resources that can be used in in developing and executing effective intentional philanthropy.

By engaging our IPI team, you can receive guidance on how to power your intentional investment strategy – which approaches are right for your community or individual focus and how to create the biggest impact.
