Transforming Wealth into an Instrument of Change

We are a multi-generational membership organization devoted to aligning our resources with our values while fostering a fertile training ground for the full and authentic expression of passions and purpose. For more than four decades, Threshold has been a catalyst for social and environmental change by seeding hundreds of nascent organizations, and by supporting the inception of multiple donor networks and socially responsible businesses throughout the world. The organization is both a gathering place for deeply committed people to explore their highest philanthropic/individual purpose and a grant-making body that amplifies impact.

Threshold's Grantmaking & Impact
