Who We Are
American Philanthropic is a rapidly growing national consulting and services firm that helps nonprofits and those that support them raise and give charitable funds. We believe that people flourish within voluntary associations—the charities, churches, schools, and organizations that make up civil society. Nonprofits need money, and that’s where AmPhil comes in: we help nonprofits think strategically, develop powerful messaging, reach potential donors, and cultivate the donors they have. We also help civil-minded donors give wisely and well. What binds us together are our commitments to excellent work and deep thinking, to practical wisdom and learning by doing, to camaraderie and a shared mission.
