Building Toward the Future


A New Day for Gift Planning

Simone Joyaux

Consultant, Fundraising, Governance, Management, and Strategic Planning

I'm described as "one of the most thoughtful, inspirational, and provocative leaders in the philanthropic sector worldwide."

In January 2021, I began my 33rd year as a consultant specializing in fundraising, governance, management, and strategic planning. I speak worldwide: North America, Eastern and Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand. For 20 years, I taught governance in a university masters program.

I regularly serve on boards, often as chair. I've written 3 books and contributed to multiple others. I've founded two nonprofits.

Philanthropy is my life's work. My life partner and I have bequeathed our entire estate to charity. (And yes, unearned privilege helps us do so.)
