What Sets Us Apart


What sets us apart

Our strategic approach to philanthropy, our experience in geo-politics and public policy, along with our ability to measure the impact of your philanthropic efforts set us apart.

 

 

Strategic Philanthropy.

We don't just consider which humanitarian causes are trending. We look at which causes are the best match for your background, experiences and passions—and which causes you can impact the most.

Policy Advocacy.

Our comprehensive strategy includes policy advocacy and engagement with policymakers. By taking a macro-level approach, we help you advocate for policy changes and paradigm shifts that can truly be game-changing and impact entire populations.

Impact Methodology.

Contributing your time, funding and reputation to a humanitarian cause is an investment. We can monitor and evaluate the impact of your investment on people's lives.
