Clients have the option of anonymity and benefit from employing an experienced, knowledgeable team to guide them through their giving decisions.
“Excellence in Giving provided multi-faceted, timely and excellent support over a crucial four year period in Bridgeway Foundation’s development,” said John Montgomery, founder of Bridgeway Funds, Houston, Texas. “They introduced us to key granting relationships in our core giving area, performed original grantee level and ‘industry level’ due diligence, and even facilitated our first board retreat. Excellence in Giving staff provided support and leadership when our foundation leader went on extended medical leave. They upgraded our computer and database system for our granting program and served as our search firm for new staff leadership.”
Excellence in Giving Services include a discovery process, giving game plan, grant management, giving dashboards and forecasts, philanthropic coaching, organizational evaluation, customized service trips, gift matching and leveraging, corporate generosity and next generation philanthropic training.
