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 resource efficiency, companies that include both social and environmental themes, and companies that offer affordable financial services. 

Maja's commitment is to give what she earns.  Her charitable donations help develop an 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 by Convergence, Center for Policy Resolution in 2019 for her work on bridge building, collaborative leadership and philanthropy.  She was also honored with a Spirit of Philanthropy Award as an outstanding philanthropist by the Association of Fundraising Professionals in 2016.
