Protege Highlight

Clay serves on the boards of numerous environmental and humanitarian nonprofits, land trusts, and belongs to many societies (some secret). That bring him to interact with world leaders such as Pope Francis and the descendants of Charles Darwin. In 2013, he was recognized by the Museum of Natural History in London as a Darwin Fellow (distinguished naturalist under 30 years old) and in 2021. He was Knighted by The Order of St. George (formed in 1323 AD and the only chivalric order of Knights able to confer nobility) for his celebrated merit, competence, and generosity.

Today, Clay is a handpicked member of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer’s GreenWorks task force, a member of the Development Advisory Board for Orange County Florida, a member of the Central Florida Advisory Board to Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy, and a frequent lecturer at the world’s most respected academic institutions, United Nations, World Bank, and IMF events. Clay is also a founding investor in Climate First Bank, a values-based community bank, focused on environmental sustainability.

Get Your Non-Profit Ready!

Know Thyself

Nonprofits exist for a reason other than making profit, so get clear on your cause and get ready to act. There is no shortage of needs – from the environment, to children, to peace and justice – everyone can make a difference if they try.

Build A Team

No one can build a nonprofit organization alone. Most states require three people to form a non-profit, but laws can vary state by state. Regardless, you want to leverage your collective group’s time, talent, treasure, taxes, and legacy.


Plan For Adventure

Starting a nonprofit should be a dream, not a nightmare. Don’t spend hundreds of hours agonizing over paperwork only to be more confused. Choose to work with a Master who can help you maximize your greatness beyond what you imagine.
