We have partnered with the Marin Community Fund to leverage their expertise, connections, and resources in achieving our philanthropic goals. For inquiries, please contact Megan DeGraeve:


Our giving is a natural result of the gratitude we feel for the abundance of love, support, and financial resources we have received from family, friends, and the businesses we have created and supported.

Together as a family we invest our philanthropic funds, time, and talents in empowering people, their families, and their communities. Geographically, we focus on the places where we live and areas of vulnerable people worldwide.
