We are pioneers in Servant Capital, a new model of Venture Philanthropy.

We put ourselves in service to those front-line public servants who are serving our country and our communities.

Investment Overview

THE PROBLEM WE'RE SOLVING

Volatile Environment

Our high-risk public servants (veterans, paramilitary, first responders, etc.) are accepting greater burden and risk in service to their country and communities. The prevalence of behavioral health conditions among first responders is 50% greater than the general population.

Legacy Approaches

There has been no holistic approach to serving high-risk public servants, and there are many gaps in serving this community. Clandestine service officers retiring from the CIA do not have access to the same PTSD resources as military veterans.

Crowded Space

This market is fragmented and poorly coordinated with over 38,000 entities. Recipients and donors find this landscape chaotic, redundant, and often inefficient. Moreover, this situation will become worse as charitable giving declines while needs remain high or, in some cases, increase. Only 14% of veteran-service organizations receive more than $250K in annual contributions.

Victim Mindset

The dominant approach has been to treat this community as victims in need of assistance, rather than national assets with highly valuable experience and knowledge Only one of the 14-top rated veteran and military charities approaches this community as a resource.
