Council Membership

Since 1949, the Council on Foundations has worked tirelessly to amplify, strengthen, and advocate for the philanthropic sector.

Investing in Council membership gives you access to an active and diverse network of leaders, who like you, care deeply about the world around them. We understand philanthropy is hard work and requires the right tools, knowledge, and network to maximize your impact. 

Whether your organization is well established or new, the Council offers a broad range of support and resources for your individual needs. Our responsive and knowledgeable team will help you achieve your goals, advance your mission, and magnify your impact.
