We

We are structured to support the notion that philanthropy is more than a type of funding. In its truest sense, philanthropy is about improving the lives of others, independent of the mechanism. Consequently, we work across the social and business sectors, operating both a Limited Liability Company (LLC) and a 501(c)(3) foundation.
