FAIRFIELD, Conn., — (NEWS WIRE) — Foundation Source, the nation’s largest provider of cloud-based solutions for private foundations and planned giving, today announced it will offer end-to-end website services for private foundations. This new offering is an extension of Foundation Source’s highly regarded suite of administrative, compliance and tax solutions and expands its range of tech-enabled services that help foundations operate more effectively. This is the first joint initiative from Foundation Source and its planned giving division, PG Calc, to deliver sophisticated solutions that draw on the expertise in both organizations to make giving easier and more efficient.

Having an enhanced digital presence enables private foundations to communicate what’s important to them, connect with potential grantees and promote clear grant and application processes. At the core of Foundation Source’s offering is a deep understanding of the foundation lifecycle and how digital tools and communications can be used at each stage to help a foundation reach its goals. By combining smart philanthropic technology – or PhilTech – with decades of programmatic experience in the philanthropic sector, Foundation Source ensures that foundations get a modern, dynamic site that helps them increase transparency and amplify the impact of their charitable giving while alleviating the administrative burden associated with building, hosting, securing, and maintaining a website.

Three distinct choices provide varying levels of features and customization with support every step of the way – from initial consultation and planning to design, development, testing, and ongoing maintenance – ensuring that each site matches the foundation’s needs and complements its programs and grantmaking priorities.

“Effectively communicating missions and goals is an essential part of a foundation’s strategy,” said Gary Pforzheimer, founder of PG Calc and president of planned giving at Foundation Source. “We have helped thousands of nonprofits promote their programs and attract donors through their websites over the years and we’re excited to expand these services to grantmakers. Our services will help foster more collaboration between foundations and nonprofits so they can drive an even bigger impact.”

Foundation Source’s seasoned philanthropic and technical experts collaborate closely with foundation leadership to bring their visions to life and select the level of support that best fits each organization’s unique needs. As part of the offering, the company provides guidance on site features, functionality, accessibility, editorial content, editing, branding, imagery, typography, and data analytics. Design and development specialists ensure each site is visually compelling and intuitively functional, prioritizing highly engaging and responsive design.

Key features of Foundation Source’s managed website services include:

  • Full-service website development including content development, branding and imagery customized to your needs and informed by sector experience and best practices.
  • Analytics to track who visits your website and monitor if you are reaching your target audience.
  • Built-in, on-page SEO and accessibility, including mobile optimization and personal recommendations on content organization and site navigation.
  • Monitoring and detection tools to catch and respond to security incidents in real-time to prevent potential security breaches and create robust data privacy.
  • Easy navigation and intuitive design for seamless usability as well as effective content presentation.
  • Dedicated support and maintenance services to ensure websites remain secure, up-to-date, and optimized for performance.
  • Starter, Advanced, and Premium options to meet current and growing needs.

“We continue to seek new opportunities to leverage PhilTech throughout the charitable giving cycle while simplifying the legwork for our clients so they can focus on what is most important to them: their missions,” said Joseph Mrak III, CEO of Foundation Source. “Our deep foundation expertise combined with a robust suite of technical and educational resources provide a second-to-none experience for funders to enhance their charitable efforts and build deeper connections with their key stakeholders and nonprofit community at large.”
