Highlights of the Foundation Center's 2000 Study - Family Foundations: A Profile of Funders and Trends

January 1, 2000

Family Foundations: A Profile of Funders and Trends provides the most comprehensive analysis available on U.S. independent foundations that operate with substantial donor and/or donor-family involvement. (Note: Lacking a legal definition of "family" foundations, it is likely that the report does not capture all of these funders.) The report is divided into two major components. The first section documents the size and scope of the family foundation community. The second section examines the giving trends of a sample of larger family foundations compared to all independent founations in the sample, and includes a brief comparison of giving patterns by family foundation size.
