We can help

Corporate Donations

Contribute a legacy to your community beyond your business acumen and services.

501(c)3 Growth

Participate in our "Community Conversation" or "GiveGrandly!"

Community Initiatives

We host a variety of events, stimulating discourse between local not for profit organizations - linking corporate donors with local recipients.

Estate Planning

After you've taken care of your family, have you thought about taking care of your community?

Donor Directive Initiatives

Want to donate to a specific genre of art, but it doesn't locally exist; we will make your needs come to fruition. We ensure your donation is used in the spirit in which you intended it to be, weather it's cash or a collection of Persian rugs.

Giving Platforms

Recently we offered all 501(c)3 who participated in Give Grandly 2018 a year's trial of a stellar giving platform (for free).

The foundation’s funds come from a variety of sources, including individuals, families, organizations, businesses, corporations, bequests and living trusts. Funds are invested in perpetuity and a portion of the investment earnings are then distributed according to the donors’ philanthropic wishes.
