Achieve your goals for a better world.

Vantage Point Philanthropy partners with philanthropic people, businesses and foundations who share a passion for making a difference in the world. Our clients have a desire to dig deep and authentically engage with their communities to maximize the impact of their charitable giving.

Philanthropy needs your perspective.

We believe that every individual, family, business and foundation has a unique and important perspective to bring to philanthropic giving. That’s why we work with you to design straightforward services that fit your situation and meet your particular needs. We are passionate about helping our clients make their contribution to the world through philanthropy.


We help individuals, couples and families explore where to start with their philanthropy, take it to the next level or plan their legacy. We work with you to navigate the complexities of philanthropic structures, engaging the next generation, community partnerships, and scholarship and giving strategies.


We help businesses give back to their communities, engage their employees and build their socially responsible brand. We work with giving committees, members of family businesses, employee groups, social responsibility officers, corporate foundations and company leaders to support your company’s brand, mission and values.


We help foundations address internal and external challenges, whether simple or complex. Working with donor advised funds, private, family, community, corporate, interest area, municipal and education foundations, we come alongside you to chart a course to achieve your organizational, scholarship, grantmaking and fundraising goals.
