Karma & Cents

A Social Impact Lab moving individuals, families and family enterprises from Traditional Philanthropy to Philanthropy 3.0

At Karma & Cents we support family foundations and family enterprises in attaining their social and legacy objectives.

We do this in four distinct, yet complementary ways:


Direct management and facilitation support of family foundation design, implementation, evaluation and ongoing support


Succession planning and transition management support for family-owned businesses


Legacy videos and family story archiving

Social Impact Lab

Rapid prototyping solutions geared toward generating social and financial impact for communities, the foundations, the business and the individuals within the organization and/or family.

A fresh look at philanthropy

Since the early 1600’s North American’s have been “doing philanthropy” the same way and yet we still haven’t solved some of these complex problems.

At Karma & Cents™ we believe that family and corporate dollars can be put to better use by financing solutions instead of funding problems.  It is our approach that goes to the heart of the issue – our clients want to actually see, feel and know that what they are doing in the world is going to make a difference.

Financing Innovation: A Social Impact Lab

In April 2018 we ran a Social Impact Lab for 9 family foundations/ offices in Calgary. This half-day workshop provided a framwork for exploring how best to fund innovation and high-risk solutions. You can read about the process and some of the insights in this whitepaper.

Are you ready to take the
next step to Philanthropy 3.0?
