“It is more difficult to give away money than to earn it in the first place.”

Andrew Carnegie

While you may not agree with Andrew Carnegie’s style of philanthropy, he was not wrong. 


Crafting a well-defined grantmaking strategy is the cornerstone of effective philanthropy, and it is not as easy as simply writing a cheque.


KV Philanthropy consulting helps you to develop a comprehensive plan that optimizes your resources and drives tangible results. We will clarify your mission, goals and objectives, but also identify the methodologies that are best suited to ensure you achieve those goals.

  • What is your giving timeline? How does that impact your exit strategy?

  • How will you measure your social impact?

  • Is your endowment being invested and/or put to use in accordance with your mission?
