Foundations & Other Philanthropies

Foundations and philanthropic entities come in many forms. Whether you are involved with an independent foundation, community foundation, corporate foundation, family foundation, funder collaborative, or network of donors, we can help you take the lead on an issue, assess key successes and challenges, ramp up and increase your impact, or take your efforts to the next level in other ways.

Want to revamp your strategic plan? Determine if a program is working as planned? Assess the role impact investing might play in your grantmaking portfolio? Gather a group of key players to increase impact? TPI has been there – multiple times. And we don’t just advise clients; we also promote strategic philanthropy and work to strengthen the field throughout the U.S. and beyond.
