How is Foundation Center Funded?
Your Contribution Helps Us Achieve Our Mission
Close to 550 foundations and corporations provide annual support to Foundation Center, joined by a growing number of valued individual donors. Those contributions help us toward achieving the goals in our 2020 strategic investment plan. This support helps us to maintain and strengthen our programs and services, the majority of which are free. And we do our part by covering more than half of Foundation Center's operating budget with earned income.
If you can't imagine doing your work without Foundation Center, please make a gift at any level to sustain our services to the sector.
Nonprofit organizations benefit from programs such as Foundation Center Training, Foundation Directory Online, or Philanthropy News Digest. Ninety-nine percent of our users access our tools and resources for free.
