Communities Are Deeply Suffering
The cards are stacked against many communities. The combination of racism, climate change, and low wages has left many under-resourced communities fighting to recover and ultimately thrive. The wealth gap continues to widen while devastating weather events continue to increase leaving those at the bottom unable to fulfill their basic needs. The problems are more than one organization can solve.

“It’s super rare to get world-class portfolio advice from someone who doesn’t have their hand in your pocket. It’s rarer to get a whole new framework for thinking about donations and philanthropic work. Rarest of all is a combination of clear next steps and the challenge to take action. Stephanie Gripne of the Impact Finance Center delivers a trifecta.”
“I have attended a lot of academic talks and yours has, in a sense, been one of the most transformative for me. I never envisioned looking at investments in the way that you explained so clearly, and I am looking at my future proposals in a different light.”
