Notley was founded in 2015 by Dan Graham, founder of, and his wife, Lisa as a way to leverage their own business and investing success. Named for the abbey in Oxford, England where they were married, Notley’s mission is to fund and support businesses, non-profits, and programs making positive change and social impact in the world.

With leaders Matt McDonnell and Sara Levy, in less than two years Notley has developed an ecosystem of more than 50 mission-aligned portfolio businesses and non-profit organizations. Notley is focused on creating a family of ventures that support each other by sharing specialized services, spearheading social impact initiatives across the country, and creating organic opportunities for serendipity and growth.

“Lisa and Dan Graham are the rare breed of people who are dreamers and doers.”
