Family Offices, Foundations & Investors

Empowering Philanthropy and Investment for a Sustainable World

There are many profitable business solutions to address climate change but traditional, for profit investments are not always enough to innovate and scale. Foundations, family offices, and other philanthropic entities are critical to building capacity amongst nonprofits and social entrepreneurs, and to help fund needed research. Based on your foundation’s priorities and impact areas, we will work together so you can identify, fund, and collaborate with leading nonprofits to ensure impact per dollar.

Our work together may mean establishing a theory of change to ground philanthropic giving over a specific time period, reviewing and revamping grant portfolios, and educating trustees on a  food/agriculture topic to inform the giving strategy.

  • Philanthropic Advising & Nonprofit Fundraising: We’ll help you identify, fund, and partner with leading nonprofits for maximum impact.
  • Establishing a Theory of Change: Develop a solid framework for your philanthropic giving.
  • Auditing the Impact of Grant Portfolios: Assess the effectiveness of your grants and investments.
  • Educating Trustees on Food Topics: Equip your team with the knowledge needed for informed giving.
  • Climate Messaging Mastery Course: Connect with food-focused nonprofits and disperse climate-focused philanthropic dollars.
