An issue that is top of mind for many of our clients during this time is how they can best harness the opportunity of their wealth – to live out their values, bring about the world they want to see, and work together on these issues as a family.  To this end, we are coming to you with stories of families who have collaborated together on an issue related to the impact of their wealth.  Please see disclosures at the bottom of this page.

These are recorded conversations among family members – in the StoryCorps model – and we hope that this is the first in a series of our clients sharing their stories and lessons learned with one another.
