Welcome to Advancing Foundation Archives

Building A Community for Knowledge Sharing and Problem Solving

The June 2019 conference Advancing Foundation Archives: Advocacy, Strategies, and Solutions was attended by over 100 archivists, grants managers, foundation leaders, information specialists, historians, legal experts, and many others who gathered in New York City to share ideas, practices, and resources.

This website, along with the conference Proceedings publication and the links to additional Resources, is the first step in building a broader community dedicated to effective foundation information governance, records management, archival practice, and knowledge management for the purpose of preserving, making accessible, and learning from the history of philanthropy.
