Giving Back

The team at Flourish Wealth Management believes in the importance of giving back to our community. Our team members are encouraged to find ways to both engage and make a difference in our community.

Involvement in local organizations helps our team develop a greater connection with the people and causes that make a difference in the community. These are the organizations that we are currently involved with.

  • Founded in 1983, the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota is the first statewide women’s foundation in the nation and remains the only grantmaking organization in Minnesota dedicated exclusively to growing equity for women and girls. Founders across the state were united by a powerful common goal to create an enduring legacy of equality for women and girls.

    They were deeply concerned about two related issues: the small proportion of philanthropic support allocated to women and girls in Minnesota (less than 3 percent at the time) and the fact that support did not address the need for long-term system-wide change.

    As a statewide community foundation, the Foundation makes grants, invests in research, advocates policy, and forges cross-sector partnerships to ensure community-based, community-led solutions across Minnesota. Kathy is proud to serve on the Professional Advisors Committee for the Women's Foundation of Minnesota.

  • Common Hope educates children and empowers families in Guatemala. Common Hope believes education is the key to unwinding the cycle of poverty. At the same time, they understand a child's success in school depends greatly on his or her family's health, safety, and stability. Because of this, they provide programs in four integrated areas: education, health care, housing, and family development.

    Kathy appreciates the holistic focus to the work of Common Hope; she became involved with the organization shortly after adopting her two younger children from Guatemala as a way to give back to a country she cares for deeply. She currently serves as Chair of the Executive Board. Flourish is a proud sponsor of the annual benefit Noche de Colores.

  • YWCA Minneapolis is a nonprofit organization founded in 1891 as a member of the national YWCA, the oldest and largest multicultural organization in the world. They share a common vision for peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all people. YWCA Minneapolis is led by an all-women board of directors who are responsible for setting the policy and direction for the organization. Kathy is proud to serve on the Board, and Flourish is a sponsor of the Circle of Women event.

    Circle of Men is a giving society established in 2016 to support YWCA Minneapolis by engaging male community leaders who are passionate supporters of the mission to Empower Women and Eliminate Racism. The group has grown and evolved over time and is taking a lead role to support early childhood education programs to prepare students for success in higher education and in employment opportunities. Circle of Men is making an investment in the Class of 2036 today, which will pay huge dividends to the State of Minnesota with a prepared workforce and successful citizens. Jay Pluimer is co-chair of Circle of Men.
