The Foundation Center has identified more than 33,100 independent foundations with measurable donor or donor-family involvement. These "family foundations" represent more than half of all independent foundations and account for similar shares of independent foundations' giving, assets, and new gifts and bequests from donors. If all of the nation's family foundations could be identified, these shares would undoubtedly rise.
