We Are a Community


We Are a Community

We are a community of individuals, all from different backgrounds, occupations, locations, and stages of life. But we all believe in actively living according to our values and serving beyond our self-interest. We have a common belief in preserving freedom and opportunity for all and creating a better world for future generations.


Our network is comprised of respectable and influential individuals. But we come together as a community to augment their impact through shared values, knowledge, perspective, exposure to critical issues, and opportunities to civically engage locally and around the world. We learn and experience these things together; engage in deep, occasionally difficult but non-divisive dialogue; and inspire and celebrate each other’s successes, all with a healthy dose of fun.

We also believe in the “network effect.” Alder helps turn your curiosity into passion and passion into action. Our community and our wider network of experts, influencers, and supporters help amplify your impact beyond what you could accomplish even as an extraordinary individual.
