Foundation Management

Whether you are creating a private or family foundation from the ground up or have had a well-established foundation for years, FMP will facilitate in helping your philanthropy be more effective and efficient.  Our knowledgeable team of experts is ready to support the operations of the foundation, as well as help donors define and achieve their philanthropic visions and maximize the impact of their philanthropic efforts.

Our clients include a diverse group of private funding organizations, each with unique histories, philosophies, and operating styles that all share a common interest in improving the community and creating a long lasting legacy through effective charitable giving.

You are never on your own with FMP, as our discerning client advisors are prepared to get to know the ins and outs of your foundation and are always standing by to provide help. Our staff has a combined total of over 50 years of expertise in designing and directing charitable giving programs. Our experiences have provided us with effective tools as well as demonstrative skills and perspective upon which our clients have come to rely upon. We can

  • Develop, implement and continuously improve grant-making programs
  • Use our extensive knowledge of existing charities to find those that best advance a client’s mission
  • Communicate with grant-seekers on behalf of our clients to make sure their vision and goals are achieved
  • Help clients evaluate grant requests
  • Handle all administrative functions so that clients have the satisfaction of knowing their foundation is well-run
  • Assure that clients are in compliance with all legal and tax requirements

Because we serve more than one foundation, we are knowledgeable about a broad range of community initiatives, have up-to-date information on numerous exciting funding opportunities, and can facilitate collaboration among several funders on large projects.

We work exclusively for our clients and are not affiliated with any specific investment or financial institutions or with any individual charity. Clients retain complete autonomy, and confidentiality is maintained throughout the entire grant-making process.
