We are people for whom improving our desert community is part of our life’s journey.
We are volunteers, parents, community leaders, business leaders, and engaged philanthropists – a global network of local partners connecting passion and purpose. We take an innovative approach to philanthropy in the Valley, leveraging our dollars, networks and professional skills to support our Investees. We have found this “time plus money” approach helps our Investees increase their capacity to deliver positive social impact in our desert community.
We see the chasm between the challenges we face today as a society, and the scale at which we are engaging those challenges.
And we’re ready to cross that chasm. Together.
We believe that nonprofits face many of the same challenges as new businesses. As entrepreneurs and business leaders, we’ve faced them ourselves. That’s why, in addition to providing capital, we contribute experience.
We get to know our investees–their people, their goals, and their challenges–and we bring all of our professional skills, experience, connections, and other resources to help build strong organizations and effective strategies for long-term success.
Most importantly, we believe it can be.
We believe that nothing truly great is accomplished alone. Every person in our Phoenix partnership has something to teach and something to learn. We are never satisfied, never settled. We know we have more to give, and that more needs to be done.
Where others see insurmountable problems, we see potential.
