We're committed to helping you make a difference.
We've helped individuals, families, and foundation leaders make positive change in every sector, from arts education to climate change, and from medical research to early childhood literacy.
While we've worked on projects all over the world, Southern California is our home.
We have broad and deep knowledge of the cutting-edge organizations, leaders, and strategists working to improve the region. We look forward to helping you form the connections necessary to get the most out of your giving.
Philanthropy should be a labor of love and joy. The most satisfied givers are those that are motivated by both compassion and strategy. Our goal is to help you find that balance.
Mitch has had the privilege of advising some of the nation's most influential and strategic philanthropists. For ten years at Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, Mitch helped individuals, families, corporations, and foundations build strategies for giving and make high-impact grants. Before working directly with donors, he served as the associate director of the Center on Philanthropy and Public Policy at USC, an academic center that studies the field of philanthropy. Prior to that, he spent eight years at The California Endowment, a $4 billion private foundation that seeks to improve the health of underserved communities. He started his career as a caseworker for Congresswoman Jane Harman, where he assisted constituents and discovered that nothing is more satisfying than being of service.
Mitch currently serves on the board of Liberty Hill Foundation. He previously spent six years on the board of Funders for LGBTQ Issues. When not working, he is planning vacations he might never take, walking in his neighborhood, spending time with friends and family, and wondering how anyone can live anywhere but here.
