Our Areas of Focus

Because we’re focused on customized solutions and collaborative impact, the depth and range of what we do goes beyond a list of services. Instead, here’s a window into some of the ways we support clients.


From analyzing complex contexts to helping you craft an effective strategy to bringing together groups of like-minded philanthropists and community leaders, we share data-driven insights and ideas to amplify your impact.

What our clients say:

“We started our partnership with Building Impact Partners six years ago at a significant moment in the evolution of our foundation. The BIP team quickly built relationships with our team, mobilized around our needs, and helped us craft our path forward. As our team grew, our partnership with BIP grew alongside it, with both operational and strategic support. I can confidently say that we are a more responsive, thoughtful, and intentional funder as a result of this valuable partnership.”
— Liz Aybar Conti, Margulf Foundation


Fresh thinking and insights are key to capitalizing on philanthropy’s potential. Our tailored approach makes us ideal thought partners and collaborators who work with you to build groundbreaking ideas into impactful solutions.

What our clients say:

“We started working with Building Impact at an interesting moment in our philanthropic journey — we were passionate about what we wanted to accomplish, but knew it would be a challenge to go from ideas to action.  The BI team has rolled up its sleeves, working closely and effectively with our family and advisors, helping us turn that passion and energy into concrete results. With their depth of knowledge, experience and expertise guiding us, we are keenly aware of their value added, and together we are in the process of actualizing something deeply meaningful.” 
— Victoria Zoellner, Sycamore Hill Foundation


We’re focused on making your vision a reality and we partner with you to make it happen. We harness our experience as practitioners to create the change you hope to see – whether it’s launching a new social impact venture, advocating for new policy or amplifying programs at scale.

What our clients say:

“We worked with Building Impact Partners to help us design and implement our Heckscher Foundation Workforce Challenge, a revolutionary initiative which offered funding to New York colleges or community-based organizations to develop partnerships with employers to provide jobs for underserved youth in New York. They designed and managed everything from the communication strategies to the organizational structure and implemented every aspect of the project with insight and brilliance that transformed our vision into a resounding success.”
