“It is hard to say ‘no’ graciously; it is even harder to say ‘yes’ wisely.”


The Institute for Wise Philanthropy™ is a firm dedicated to helping individual philanthropists, families, and foundations make better decisions. We believe philanthropic grantmaking should align with the values, culture, and priorities of the funder, be effectively invested in recipient organizations, and be informed by thoughtful and educated decision-making.
