Founded in 2012 by idealistic money managers, The Firestarter Group represents a new model for directing channels of charitable giving to areas of need. Our strategists offer active management of giving portfolios for individuals, foundations, and corporations, while investing in an internal social impact portfolio of our own. We believe in breaking boundaries that keep charitable giving insulated from risk and innovation, recognizing that an active approach to fueling social change is the only way to capture social alpha. Use the form below to join us in a conversation we love to have.
Social Alpha mimics a concept in financial services that describes a manager's ability to produce specialized above average returns. For us, it represents an ability to amplify the (S)ROI of a charitable contribution through ongoing community inquiry and active project management.
The faces of donors continue to change. We believe in building new tools for them to have at their disposal. Our clients come to us for help with impact tracking, project planning, and start up implementation. We believe in providing custom options for donors of all backgrounds.
Our Social Impact Portfolio focuses on sustainable investment in the productive capabilities of unrecognized communities across the globe. We believe in helping consumers at the bottom of the pyramid claim their rights through private enterprise and the recognition of common purchasing power.
