The Association of Small Foundations (ASF) is a membership organization of over 3,000 foundations. Through our dedication to foundations, we have become the country's largest foundation-support organization.
At ASF small related to staff size, not to assets. The United States is home to over 60,000 small foundations - those led entirely by volunteer boards or operated by just a few staff. These small foundations account for half of the country's total foundation grant dollars, and provide essential financial support in communities across the country.
ASF enhances the power of small foundation giving by providing the donors, trustees, and staff of member foundations with peer learning opportunities, targeted tools and resources, and a collective voice in and beyond the philanthropic community.
Partner with your church, mosque or synagogue, and create your own foundation.
