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 and Jay appreciate the holistic focus to the work of Common Hope; they became involved with the organization shortly after adopting their two younger children from Guatemala as a way to give back to a country she cares for deeply. Kathy has served as Chair of the Executive Board. Jay heads the annual golf fundraising event. Flourish is a proud sponsor of Common Hope.
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 and other key events.
