Investment performance is the lifeblood of charitable giving for private foundations. Unlike public or operating charities which actively seek donations to support their work, private foundations rely on their investment returns to support their philanthropic missions. For most foundations, investment returns provide the sole source of income.
Simply put better returns mean more money to charity.
Foundation Advocate is the only source of news and information dedicated solely to tracking the investment performance of private foundations.
Foundation Advocate works in conjunction with our parent company Foundation Financial Research publisher of the FoundationMark Indices and provides free custom reports for trustees to all of the 40,000 foundations that they track. If you are a trustee and want to request your report, click here.
Foundation Advocate does not offer investment advice or any products. We simply offer independent and objective resources to the foundation community. We hope you find our work useful and welcome your feedback.
