Like any business, a Philanthropist, Donor, Charity, or Foundation needs a vision, mission, and a strategic plan. If you’re just starting, Lugen Family Office will help you form a vision for your giving. If you’re a mature, well-established philanthropist or non-profit organization, it may be time to take a critical look at your stated mission, processes, communication strategies, guidelines, and objectives to ensure that your core mission continues to reflect your values. Or, you may need help designing and implementing a specific project or program within your mission.


Lugen Family Office is your strategic philanthropy partner in helping you gain clarity on such key philanthropic questions such as:

  • Who makes philanthropic decisions?
  • What criteria are applied to those decisions?
  • What systems are in place to evaluate grant requests?
  • How do you investigate and research which charities will receive your philanthropy?
  • How do you evaluate the impact of your grants?
  • Are there opportunities to partner with other foundations to achieve greater impact?
  • Do you have specific projects you’d like to undertake for which you lack sufficient human resources to implement?
  • Are there nonprofits whose mission you support but who lack the capacity to fully implement their mission? Would you like to help them improve their capacity before funding programs?
  • What accountability is there from the nonprofit organizations to which you give?
