We’ll Meet You Where You Are

Are you experienced in philanthropy or just starting out? Do you need to find a focus, navigate a transition or increase your impact? Are you trying to involve the next generation?

FPA works with new and long-standing foundations to develop and implement the best governance, process, policies, practices, actions and communication strategies for you.

How We Work

We engage the many skills of our team and our systems to meet your specific needs.

We’re client-centered, positive, strategic, collaborative, lively, thorough and attentive to detail. (We’re also a lot of fun to work with.)

We’re passionate about changing the world, and we believe philanthropy has enormous potential to do so.

    Strategy and Innovation

    Want to really change the world? We thrive on providing strategy and services to philanthropists who want to do more than write checks. We design and manage major philanthropic initiatives that generate social change using powerful tools: advocacy, convening, communication and research.

    Working With Us

    We’ll explore your needs and wants, then create a customized proposal for our services. We set an annual fee based on a combination of factors including scope of services, estimated total grants (number and dollars), board complexity, meeting frequency and intensity of involvement.
