Our Work

Using key research, such as our Vital Signs Reports, we have a deep understanding of the pressing needs in our community and can match funding from endowment funds to where it is needed most.


Connecting Leaders

We bring individuals and private and public organizations together to address community needs.


Giving Grants

We understand the community and can help you respond to vital needs and support your giving objectives by providing grants to charities.


Building Legacies

If you’d like to leave a lasting legacy we can help you to create an endowment to support local causes now and for years to come.
