Arabella Advisors helps philanthropists and investors who are serious about impact achieve the greatest good with their resources.


We help you imagine what’s possible, design the best strategy, learn what works best, and do the work necessary to make your vision a reality. We combine creative, strategic thinking with knowledge and networks developed through decades of hands-on experience in the field.

Our comprehensive and personalized services deliver results for families and individuals, institutional foundations, impact investors, and corporate clients worldwide.

Eric Kessler founded Arabella in 2005 to provide strategic guidance for effective philanthropy. In the years since, we have grown to a team of more than 120 people across four cities dedicated to helping clients make a difference on the issues that matter most to them.

We help families and individuals develop effective and efficient strategies for their philanthropy and impact investing. Institutional foundations rely on us as a strategic partner and a resource to extend limited capacity. And we work with corporations to align their philanthropy with their business strategies and bottom lines.

Our customized services are built from a comprehensive platform spanning strategy, due diligence, evaluation, grant making, impact investing, project incubation, donor collaboratives, foundation management, board support, family engagement, and education.

Arabella is a uniquely independent and unbiased resource: We work exclusively for donors and investors, providing objective advice to help you achieve greater good.



We invite our clients and employees to be fully themselves. By integrating diversity, equity and inclusion into our work, we benefit from increased learning, creativity, flexibility, and organizational and individual growth.
