Relationships and Innovations

By questioning assumptions about how money works and collaborating with our partners and clients, we’re creating new models of working together, new products, and fresh ways of engaging with finance.

We believe that inquiry and dialogue are essential to transforming people’s relationship with money and moving the economy toward greater equity. We enable the investors, donors and entrepreneurs in our community to explore the role of money in their lives and engage with it in more meaningful ways.

Our deeply entrepreneurial culture and unique approach to our work enable us to generate breakthrough ideas at the intersection of social change and finance. Since 1984, we have focused on developing innovative social finance tools that serve the unmet needs of our clients and partners.
