How are Advisors Chosen?

Advisors are chosen to join Advisors’ Bay through a peer-referred process. Each Advisor must hold at minimum a three-year track record in mission-related investing and have three referrals from foundations or other members of our network (e.g., investment advisors to our member foundations, individual donors, family offices, etc.). They must then complete an application form to be reviewed by the Confluence Board of Directors. All Advisors are requested to make an annual donation of $3,000 (for-profit organizations) or $1,750 (nonprofit organizations), which guarantees and includes one complimentary registration to the Annual Practitioners’ Meeting.

Protecting Our Members’ Privacy

Advisors’ Bay is not a 'pay to play' service. Confluence will not under any circumstances share the contacts of our philanthropic members with Advisors. If a member would like to connect with an Advisor they must do so directly. Furthermore, Advisors are promised neither speaking engagements at our events nor access to any of the funder-only areas of our website. Advisors are encouraged to share their research and publications, which they may post to the listserve or share with Confluence staff to post in the library.
