A Mosaic of Solutions 

What makes a community successful?

   Who Are Everyday Philanthropists?

Everyday Philanthropists are ordinary people

wanting to lend a hand, leave a legacy or pass

on family values, change the world or just make

a difference by contributing to solutions. 

     *  They are individuals, families, businesses

and groups of people who want to disrupt the

status quo to address pressing issues and 

challenges their community, their neighbors or 

their homeland face.

     *  They are agents of change in their own

community or in the global community of mankind.

     *   They are men and women of all ages,

business owners and entrepreneurs, retirees,

celebrities and athletes who want to become 

engaged philanthropists to assure their donations

of  money, knowledge, time, talent, skills and voice have an impact.

Everyday Philanthropistsare people who want to

maximize their financial resources and other assets

such as business and professional contacts and acumen, relationships, and goodwill for a greater

good. This is where Philanthropy Strategies Global

Consulting is most effective; we aim to maximize 

the giving power of  Everyday Philanthropists to

achieve meaningful results with their philanthropy. 

We are successful in these endeavors by educating,

equipping and empowering our clients to achieve

their intended philanthropic outcomes.

Drawing on the skills and knowledge base of 

seasoned professionals from a wide variety of life

experiences, we are able to  support a full spectrum 

of activities required for Everyday Philanthropists

to become effective funders. Through consulting,

research, grants management services, experiential

travel and training, we are able to offer an array of

services to help all types of people and groups of people consider or fine tune their philanthropic


Our specialty is civic sector research on the drivers

of change and community assessments that lead

to thoughtful, informed planning. With this kind of

background, funders can direct their resources in

the most effective ways and avoid some of the

pitfalls of organized philanthropy.

We also encourage future philanthropists by helping

create multi-generational giving plans to educate

children about generosity and giving back to learn

about issues and areas where they can have the

most value. This supports a long-term goal of

creating a culture of giving among Millenials and

other young adults when they become funders and

Everyday Philanthropists themselves.
