Community Impact


Being intentional about how we work with our clients also extends to how we impact our community. Our relationships and partnerships with local charities and causes are integral to our legacy. We spend both our time and our resources driving and supporting initiatives we are passionate about.


Jeff is a Corporate Advisory Committee Member for the M Health Fairview Masonic Children’s Hospital (2016 - present) - We work to actively create awareness in our community and support their efforts for continued success in the following ways:

  • Fundraising to help build out space within the hospital, fund future programming, and be able to fund child life specialist roles.
  • Partner with the Zucker Family Suite, Broadcast Studio in Masonic Children’s Hospital. This space creates a place for patients and their families to “escape” the hospital and be a kid. To interact with others throughout the hospital, laugh, and take their mind off why they are there.

M Health Fairview Masonic Children’s Hospital Philanthropic Board (2023 – present) - A volunteer advisory board, promotes philanthropic engagement to enhance the health and well-being of children throughout Minnesota, the nation, and the world. Our mission is to support Masonic Children’s Hospital and children’s health initiatives by advocating, fundraising, and furthering excellence in pediatric patient care, education, advocacy, and research at the University of Minnesota and throughout the M Health Fairview system.

Cancer Philanthropic Board Member for the M Health Fairview Hospital (2019 – 2023) - We continue to create awareness in our community for funding cancer research for patients and their families.
