Philanthropy and Finance
“Philanthropy” originates from the Greek word meaning “love of humanity” in the sense of caring, nourishing, developing, and enhancing what it is to be human.
Nourishing organizations that collaborate and braid, and that are socially responsible and of service, Maja has a hawk-like vision for implementation—knowing what resources are needed and where they will be most effectively used. This level of discernment guides both her investments for financial return and her charitable contributions.
Maja’s ESG and Impact Investments are placed with companies that hold a solid bottom line and support a higher purpose. These include benefit (B) corporations, socially responsible investing (SRI) companies, and impact investing groups. From these vested interests she gives what she earns.
Her charitable donations help develop a wide array of non-profit programs locally, nationally, and globally. Currently, she contributes to organizations that collaborate and serve, targeting a wide range of issues. Maja was honored with a Spirit of Philanthropy Award as an outstanding philanthropist by the Association of Fundraising Professionals in 2016.
