The Ferguson Foundation is proud to be a member of the Association of Small Foundations (ASF) is a membership organization for donors, trustees, employees and consultants of foundations that have few or no staff.
At ASF small relates to staff size, not to assets. Members range in assets from under $1 million to more than $50 million. Most of our member foundations operate with fewer than two paid staff, and many with volunteers alone.
The United States is home to over 60,000 small-staffed foundations. These small foundations account for nearly half of the country’s total foundation grant dollars*, and provide essential financial support in communities across the country.
ASF enhances the power of philanthropy by providing donors, trustees, and professionals with peer learning opportunities, resources, and a collective voice in and beyond the philanthropic community.
