About PFS

With offices in San Francisco, Silicon Valley, and the North Bay, Pacific Foundation Services (PFS) gives private foundations the freedom to pursue their philanthropic vision with confidence.

The firm, founded in 1987, works with about 30 private foundations ranging in size from $10 million to over $1 billion in assets. We provide them with tailored services to operate optimally—a custom combination of strategic advice, board support, grantmaking programs, compliance, financial management, and a physical home.

We work with philanthropists to support nonprofits and help communities thrive. Together with our clients, PFS champions meaningful, inclusive, and effective philanthropy.
