Ignite’s Core Principles are how we choose to show up both externally with our clients and internally with each other on the team. These principles are woven into all of our processes at Ignite from how we hire and manage performance to how we celebrate accomplishments.

  • Solutions Driven – Our work is rooted in our ability to develop solutions to help our clients achieve their philanthropic goals. We take the lead in co-creating the path to our clients’ success.
  • Adaptive – Building the right strategy requires us to remain humble, so we may continually learn and adapt. We embrace listening, questioning, and experimentation as the foundation of our adaptive mindset.

  • Service Minded Through the generosity of our clients, we serve our community by maximizing the power of giving. We lead by example, personifying the spirit of the sector we serve.
