who we are
Since 2003, our venture philanthropy model has been to provide financial and non-financial support to our portfolio of organizations. We fund new initiatives and established organizations we believe could benefit from additional financial help to ensure their continued success and impact. Our mission is to serve not only as a provider of capital but also a valued business partner.
Since our inception we have funded 25 initiatives in the US and UK in the following areas; Entrepreneurship (Youth, Women and Veterans), Medicine (Integrative, Rare Disease and Epigenetics), Environmental Sustainability in Hotel Management, Mental Health (Web Based Suicide Prevention for Teens), PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome), Women pursing a degree in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and Childhood Literacy.
Our initiatives have received recognition from The White House, Scotland Yard, Ministry of Defence (UK) and funding from The Clinton Global Initiative.
Over the last ten years we have received generous support from Diageo, The Marriott Foundation, Goldman Sachs Gives, The GE Foundation, The American Express Foundation, Citi Foundation, SAP, The Carlson Family Foundation, Marin Community Foundation and many private individuals who believe in our mission.
