Maximizing the good of giving for both donors & nonprofits. Calvin Edwards & Company was founded in April 2001. Calvin Edwards started with a single client needing serious research to identify a new giving opportunity. From the outset, Calvin Edwards & Company was created to serve the needs of donors, to increase the impact of their giving. Other clients – families, foundations, businesses, and government agencies – were added, and we gradually expanded the line of products to provide well-rounded, comprehensive service. We believe that giving is a good and honorable thing. Not only is giving good because someone is helped—usually through a nonprofit organization—but it is also good for the donor. We believe that the good of giving can be maximized, and our services are designed to increase the social and spiritual value achieved by philanthropy—for both the donor and the recipient nonprofit organizations. We serve two constituencies (with appropriate disclosures)—donors and nonprofit organizations.
