Moving You From "Success to Significance"
The measure of a truly significant individual can easily be determined by how responsible that individual is in the spending of his “social dollars”, those dollars that are shared with others, typically through taxes or charity.
We provide support, infrastructure and guidance in maximizing the management and distribution of social dollars that can truly make a difference. We provide the tools and strategies for creating a legacy that will endure for generations to come. Most important you feel fulfillment and contentment, knowing that your social dollars are being wisely spent and achieving the greatest impact possible.
We work with individuals and families that seek to take personal responsibility in self-directing their own personal charitable giving. Taking personal responsibility for their own 'personal and private' charity is much more than just making charitable contributions to a church, university, medical research or public charity, it is a series of lifestyle decisions that blends together personal estate and business resources into a charitable platform where the individual's personal charity can be freely accomplished.
The primary motivation and purpose of any private charity is really the accomplishment of the charitable passion of an individual. There are no good reasons even suggesting a wealthy individual should be prohibited from effectively managing a private charity. Rather, for the most part wealthy individuals should be given the reigns of a private charity, because they have the resources to actually get the job done.
Clearly, an individual who desires to commit his assets to the accomplishment of personal charity in the tradition of J. Paul Getty, Howard Hughes, Paul Allen, Bill Gates or Warren Buffet will always be handsomely rewarded. Of course the reward of pride of accomplishment in being charitable is the primary motivation enjoyed by those engaged in their personal charitable work. Still, the collateral benefits to being charitable are seriously considered in the structuring and execution of a private charity.
We can provide families more freedom and control to express their own vision of charity and to experience their own charitable passion. There are no good reasons for suggesting a wealthy individual be prohibited from effectively managing a private charity. Rather, for the most part, you should be given the reigns of a private charity, because you have the resources to actually get the job done.
"Within each of us there is a driving force, an inner need to be charitable and sharing. We also have a desire for hands-on influence over the actual charitable use for our personal resources"
Our "road maps" are unique and powerful, providing an unusual opportunity to really be effective in the accomplishment of personal charitable goals and maximum social-impact. Greg Johnson
