We Specialize in Working with Families

Our clients might be making a major gift using appreciated stock, or thinking about setting up a foundation, or taking over the leadership of a foundation started by their grandparents. Whatever the nature of their giving or grantmaking, our clients want their gifts to make a difference — and they want to make sure their gifts are used for their intended purpose. Our clients care a great deal about an issue, an organization, or a community. We work with our clients to put that caring into practice, and we work diligently to ensure their gifts and grants are successful.

We work with:

  • The Board of Trustees and/or the staff of family foundations.
  • Individuals and families making major gifts.
  • Individuals and families thinking about starting a foundation or other charitable entity.

“I serve as a Trustee of a sizeable private foundation that retained Neithercut Philanthropy Advisors to assess our operations. Even though the Trustees have a great deal of nonprofit experience, the firm identified a number of areas for improvement and has made our foundation more accessible, transparent, targeted, and professional. They did a great job for us and they were very efficient in their use of time. Neithercut Philanthropy Advisors knows foundations inside and out, and it shows.”
