Causes we support

One of our highest values at The Next Level Planning Group is philanthropy.  Every team member receives a matching gift of up to $500 per year to any combination of charities they support.  Here is a list of some of the organizations supported by our generous and caring team:


Founded by Jon Vroman, a friend of TNLPG, Front Row Foundation’s mission is to help individuals and families who are braving critical health challenges “Live Life In The Front Row.”™ Front Row Foundation provides its recipients a front row experience at their favorite concert, sporting event, theatrical performance or other form of live entertainment


A number of our team members’ families have been affected by mental illness
NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness.


Several of our team members grew up in households of divorce. The Lilac Tree’s mission is to provide education, support and guidance to women in the divorce process, so that they can move confidently towards independence.


Three of our team members attended Carleton College. These members offer meaningful financial gifts to Carleton. Additionally, The Next Level Planning Group offers internships and externships to Carleton students throughout the year.


The Mission of ECC is not only to sing a diverse repertoire of music, but also to involve a diverse group of children in the process and to share this music with a diverse array of people.  They believe strongly in accessibility and inclusion, and strive to break through boundaries often created by race, class, religion, and other socio-economic forces.


Two of our team members’ families belong to Beth Emet. They also play various leadership roles at the synagogue. Beth Emet is a diverse, multigenerational Reform community with a dynamic approach to Judaism. Our congregation seeks to create a spiritually vibrant, socially conscious, intellectually challenging, and deeply caring environment firmly rooted in Jewish tradition and values.


While all pre-schools aim to offer a nurturing environment of children, Cherry Pre-School stands out in its inclusiveness for those with special needs and its commitment to offer scholarships for families who need financial assistance.


Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) is a Christian non-profit organization committed to feeding God’s children hungry in body and spirit. The approach is simple: volunteers hand-pack meals specially formulated for malnourished children, and FMSC sends them to partners around the world where they’re used to operate orphanages, schools, clinics and feeding programs to break the cycle of poverty.


The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.
