About UsOur founders understood and appreciated the flexibility, versatility, and control offered by a private foundation, but wanted to avoid its traditional pitfalls–namely the complex process of setting up and running the foundation, along with the need for staff and infrastructure.

From this experience, Foundation Source was born.

Headquartered in Fairfield CT, our company made its market debut in December 2002, offering something truly revolutionary to donors and their families: an integrated suite of administrative services, expert guidance, and online foundation management tools, all under one roof. Provided on an outsourced basis, these services thoroughly automate and simplify the effort required to set up and run a foundation—efficiently, effectively, and compliantly.

Foundation Source now serves more than 1,300 family, corporate, and professionally staffed foundations, of all sizes, nationwide. Our clients supply the vision; we provide everything else.

We work in partnership with wealth management firms, law firms, and accounting firms, as well as directly with individuals and families.

Last year, Foundation Source distributed more than $432 million in grants on behalf of its clients to over 27,000 charities worldwide. And since inception, Foundation Source has distributed more than 165,000 grants, worth over $2.4 billion in charitable assistance.
