The Reality of Giving
It is easier to make money than to give it away, as noted by philanthropists ranging from Aristotle to Buffett. But it does not have to be this way. With a personalized approach and strategy, philanthropy is a rewarding and enriching experience that strengthens families and communities.
Sarah Hopper founded Sound Philanthropy to help clients experience the joy of philanthropy through a fun and inspiring journey. Her work is based on the philosophy that philanthropy is an opportunity to:
  • Make a difference in something that matters to you
  • Pass on values to younger generations
  • Foster gratitude and empathy in your family
  • Create your community legacy
  • Ensure your family legacy
"Sarah Hopper has been a key player in the success of our philanthropy as it has developed through the years. We have relied on her sage advice at significant decision points. Sarah is a valued educator and mentor to our next generation of engaged philanthropists. We love working with her!"
-Kate Janeway, Board Member, Grousemont Foundation
