Financier Hilt Tatum IV focuses on alternative investments and analyzes new offerings as he presides over iPoint Capital Partners. Hilt Tatum IV also oversees several individual portfolios and serves on the boards of directors. Additionally, Hilt Tatum gives to several nonprofits, such as the American Red Cross.
The Red Cross provides immediate assistance in natural disasters, but also keeps working in damaged communities after the first emergencies have passed. For example, it is still deeply involved with people recovering from Hurricane Sandy.
For victims in Connecticut, the Red Cross provides services such as rebuilding houses, modifying homes to meet current codes, and meeting temporary housing expenses. Caseworkers reach out to identify other necessities.
In New Jersey, the Red Cross has awarded a $600,000 grant to a church organization; the money will go to families in need of furniture, appliances, and home repair.
A New York family tells a common story: More than eight feet of standing water severely damaged their home. Through the assistance of partner agencies, the Red Cross was able to restore plumbing and electrical functioning. Other efforts took care of framing, flooring, and painting. The family recently moved back to a renovated home.
An experienced businessman and entrepreneur, Hilt Tatum IV serves as president of the Switzerland-based private equity firm iPoint Capital Partners. Outside of his professional responsibilities, Hilt Tatum IV also founded the nonprofit group Project Joy Panama.
Launched in 2007, Project Joy Panama is a charitable organization that seeks to support underprivileged families in the Central American country. A significant number of families throughout the country are poverty-stricken and lack educational opportunities. Project Joy Panama provides aid to families in the form of food, school supplies, and donations. While the organization has several initiatives, its primary goals are to help children with their educational development, ensure they remain on path to complete college, and assist them with securing gainful employment. Backed by the Oxford Consulting Group, Project Joy Panama’s premier fundraising event is its annual Christmas charity drive, which provides families with a Christmas Eve dinner and gifts for their children.
