FAIRFIELD, CT—May 31, 2016—Foundation Source, a firm that establishes and provides comprehensive support services for private foundations, today announced that Chief Philanthropic and Marketing Officer Page Snow has been named one of 2016’s ’50 Most Influential Women in Private Wealth’ by Private Asset Management magazine. The prestigious honor recognizes Ms. Snow as an innovator and leader in private wealth.

“Women now control 51% of global wealth, a percentage which is expected to rise in the coming years,” says Stephanie Bartup, Editor of Private Asset Management. “For businesses that seek to grow in tandem with this trend, it’s imperative that women like Ms. Snow steer their course. Ms. Snow, like the other women named to this list, combines the qualities of leadership, experience, and insight that put their firms in the forefront of their respective sectors.”

Ms. Snow is one of Foundation Source’s founding team members, joining the firm in 2002, shortly after its inception. The firm revolutionized the private foundation sector by offering comprehensive, outsourced support services for private foundations. By furnishing private foundations of all sizes with the resources, expertise, and infrastructure previously reserved for just a handful of billion-dollar foundations—all for a fraction of the cost—Foundation Source lowered the cost of foundation ownership and minimized the administrative burdens.

Ms. Snow is responsible for the firm’s marketing activities, aimed at raising awareness of Foundation Source’s services and expertise with individuals, financial advisors, attorneys, and the philanthropic sector. She is also responsible for developing and providing industry-leading education and strategic resources to clients through the company’s network of philanthropic professionals. Frequently quoted in both the mainstream and philanthropic press, Ms. Snow provides guidance on all aspects of the giving enterprise: mission, governance, family engagement, board development, and continuity planning

Prior to joining Foundation Source, Ms. Snow spent over 10 years with The Pew Charitable Trusts, one of the nation’s top 10 foundations. As the Trust’s Chief Officer of Institutional Planning, she helped to design, evaluate, and remodel key operations of the foundation in support of the Trusts’ model of results-based grantmaking. Subsequently, she worked with senior management at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation on the creation of their evaluation department. She has expertise in strategic planning, program design, and the evaluation of multimillion-dollar grant investments.

Ms. Snow has served on advisory committees for several prestigious philanthropic organizations including the Center for Effective Philanthropy, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the White Oak Cultural Policy Conference, the Center for Arts and Cultural Policy Studies, the Arts Organization Stabilization Initiative, and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

Ms. Snow holds a B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College and an M.A. from the University of Pennsylvania.
