Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 10, 2009
Arabella Philanthropic Investment Advisors has expanded its Arabella Foundation Management services to Chicago and doubled the size of its downtown Chicago office to fulfill the increased national and local demand for philanthropy services. The Chicago office of Arabella Advisors now offers a comprehensive suite of philanthropy services to individuals, families, corporations and institutional foundations. From philanthropic strategy to family engagement to grants management and back-office support, the Arabella Foundation Management service enables Chicago philanthropists to manage their giving more effectively.
"Many of today's philanthropists want to be more strategic with their dollars. They want to keep their eye on results and leave the operations and administration to experts. It's because of this that we've seen such great demand for foundation management services around the country," says Bruce Boyd, Principal and Managing Director of Arabella Philanthropic Investment Advisors' Chicago office. "It was only natural that we would offer these services directly from our Chicago office to our clients."
Outsourcing the management of foundations is a growing trend, giving philanthropists the chance to focus more time and energy on the important issues that engage them. The suite of Arabella Foundation Management services helps families develop effective strategies that integrate all generations even as they leave the backend foundation management work to operational specialists.
Boyd continues, "To meet the great demand from our Chicago philanthropists, we've added three new leaders to our team - Leslie Crutchfield, a leading authority on high-impact philanthropy and co-author of the critically-acclaimed book Forces for Good; Marvin Cohen, who has worked in the field of philanthropy in the Midwest over the course of three decades; and Shoshana Buchholz-Miller, a former consulting program officer at the John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation. Like the rest of our team, they look forward to bringing Arabella's services to the Chicago area."
