The Story of Hoopoe

Several years ago, a few successful families came together looking to support a non-profit that would make an impact in under-served urban communities.

To that end, we set up charitable trusts to support the non-profit where a small portion of the families’ assets were invested. That led us to stumble upon the reality that:

While many families have become very successful more recently, they have not had the time to develop a comprehensive strategy to steward their wealth, save on taxes, organize their philanthropy, and develop a plan to pass it on to their loved ones without losing a lot in taxes. Additionally, many large financial institutions do not take the time to truly understand the values and needs of such families and customize a wealth strategy accordingly.

Thus our firm Strengthening Families & Communities LLC (d/b/a Hoopoe Advisors) was born.

The Hoopoe bird is an auspicious symbol in many cultures representing integrity, loyalty, intelligence, vision and industriousness. In the prophetic story of Solomon (Suleiman), the Hoopoe was Solomon’s loyal scout -looking for opportunities far and wide to grow the kingdom’s resources.

The Hoopoe was particularly concerned with how the kingdom could do good more broadly. The Hoopoe bird was brilliant and willing to think outside the box, such that even Solomon at first did not realize the value of the opportunities the Hoopoe found.

The Hoopoe bird brought tremendous wealth to Solomon’s kingdom, and even more importantly, brought him the opportunity to partner with the wise Queen of Sheba (Saba) and her wealthy kingdom. Together they became a tremendous force for good.
