Efficiency Our citizen-run model keeps costs and fees low so more of your money goes to your cherished cause rather than administrative overhead.

Permanence Your fund becomes part of our professionally managed endowment, where over time it grows and gains grantmaking power. And as your grantmaking partner, we fulfill your charitable intentions in perpetuity.
