No one knows better than you that foundations with few or no staff differ from the country’s larger foundations. As the largest philanthropic network of grantmakers, we keep your needs in mind in all that we do.
You face many decisions—often tough ones—in your foundation work. You must build a healthy board, set direction, oversee investments and finances, make legal and ethical choices, find worthy grantees, and more. We’re here to help.
You want to make the most of your giving. At ASF, you’ll find tools, resources, and inspiration to focus, plan, and work toward your charitable goals—whatever they may be. And we’ll help you save time and money along the way.
You want to stay above board legally and avoid costly penalties for noncompliance. We’ll keep you in-the-know about changing foundation laws, help you operate legally, and do it all in language you can understand.
You don’t want to go it alone. Connect with peers in your region or across the country to get answers, learn together, and support one another. We can connect you with trusted professional advisors too—and our staff are on hand to take your calls.
Annual dues are $725, regardless of grantmaking budget.
