Together We Can Make A Difference

We are a local organization established and governed by local people who care.

We bring donors to the table as community builders and work closely with them to align their philanthropic vision with the community’s needs.  Further, we provide a highly personal and flexible service to our donors and accept a wide range of assets that provide donors with maximum tax advantages.

With your donated asset and our due diligence, we build a permanent fund that provides a regenerative, passive source of income to support and enrich the community we all live in and love.

By connecting visionary donors with causes that truly matter, we’re able to invest in people, projects and non-profit organizations that make our communities stronger – now and for the long-term.

Together we can create something special that will last forever.
