FEG’s Community Foundation Survey collects data on financial and enterprise topics to serve as a benchmarking tool and help inform community foundations across the nation. We seek to provide insights on issues relevant to community foundations today, so that they may make a greater impact for tomorrow.

The survey began in 2015 as a client request for peer comparison on asset allocation and performance. Recognizing a lack of information on enterprise topics, we expanded the scope of the survey and made it available to community foundations nationwide for a more comprehensive view of the landscape. Since inception, nearly 200 community foundations have participated.
