If you're living with more-than-enough, and feeling lost in this area, we assure you, you're not. Those with multi-generational resources have always been more concerned with where money is going, as opposed to where it's coming from. And. Go it does. If you would like to make sure you don't blow the dough, whether you have earned wealth, inherited wealth, or more complex stewardship, feel free to contact us, & we can generate a Giving Plan based on your highest values. There are millions working for good, right now. We'd like to help you find your people. That might mean activists, founders and project visionaries, &, you might just want to meet some of our alumni {worth a collective $14 B}, for an interview about what they did. Together we will excavate any money issues, trauma, and blocks so you can think, feel and work from a clear container. Fill out the form below.

And, there's also a nice bunch of resources down below, on transformative philanthropic models.
