Our philanthropic approach will be reflected through the lens of our own passions and experiences but rooted in analysis to ensure we are choosing wisely. We see our young age and long time horizon as beneficial aspects to our future giving. As we become more involved in philanthropy we hope to have a broader awareness of the needs around us and learn from those who have given and are giving around us.
