Ten Years of Social Impact and Change

Much has changed in the social sector since Michael Porter and I founded FSG as Foundation Strategy Group in 2000. In these ten years, our firm has grown to 75 FSG team members located in 5 offices; and the power of new online and technology tools and resources is enabling greater collaboration between global corporations, foundations, nonprofits, governments and individuals to achieve social impact. These tools and resources are helping organizations reinvent philanthropy by fostering easier exchange of ideas and information.

We have also used some of these technology tools to develop a brand new website for FSG, at We invite you to visit, engage with the ideas, and join in the conversations. 

FSG's New Knowledge Exchange
We've designed our new website to be more dynamic and interactive, featuring a rich Knowledge Exchange where you'll find video, blogs, research reports, published articles, and other publications. Additionally, we're excited to begin to bring other experts in the field and collaborators to our linking to blogs that we follow, featuring resources from other organizations, and sharing relevant information from the field.

Other Features
Browse our new site and you'll also find videos, webinars and other tools and resources. You'll also find our new network of blogs, including our Social Impact blog, Corporations & Society blog, Education blog, and Global Health blog. Additionally, we've added commenting functionality to our knowledge items, and we hope that you'll share your points of view.

Sharing and exchanging ideas and knowledge is central to FSG's mission, and we hope you'll find the new design of our site helpful, informative and a powerful tool in your efforts to help achieve social change.
