Organizations are coming together from across sectors to solve a variety of complex problems facing our world, a.k.a. collective impact.   We bring people together from all sectors and backgrounds to collectively define complex problems, design collaborative solutions and transform systems to make equitable change that lasts.

Investing in Women & Girls

We believe in AGENCY – the act of engendering or exerting personal power to improve the human condition and environment. As a women-owned firm, we are committed to giving women and girls the confidence and tools to shape their environments, ensuring their needs are met and enabling them to meet the needs of others. We give time, talent and money to organizations in our home community – Annapolis, MD – that help low-income women and girls build agency through programs that foster confidence, leadership, and economic independence.
