Our Process

Big missions, right-sized plans.

Without a targeted plan of action, ambitious dreams are just that: dreams. At Foundation X, our first step always begins with crafting a strategy that’s perfectly suited to you and your unique mission.



We start with a detailed assessment, listening carefully as we discuss your future goals, your current needs and your desired level of hands-on engagement.



Once we’re aligned, we craft a strategic plan that outlines our recommended governing structures, funding approaches, grant planning and more.



With the initial plans in place, we select your team from our deep roster of subject matter experts to complement your current capabilities.



Your dedicated team implements a customized plan with the structures needed to bring your mission to life.
