Why we do what we do.
"All capital creates impact."
Cathy Clark, Jed Emerson and Ben Thornley, The Impact Investor
At Impact Family Office we believe that all the decisions one makes and actions one takes with regard to finances – investments, spending, and philanthropy – have an impact on not just our individual persons, but also on our families, friends, community, and the world. By examining, identifying, and determining the impact one wants to have, we can develop an intentional impact strategy to purposefully create alignment of financial resources with values.
Who we are.
