FS Foundation

We invest in our communities.

We give back to our communities – through volunteerism, charitable giving and nonprofit board service – and believe our focus on civic and charitable engagement drives a firmwide mindset that reinforces the fiduciary duty we owe our investors.


FS Financial Scholars

A collaboration between the FS Foundation and the Netter Center for Community Partnerships at the University of Pennsylvania, FS Financial Scholars aims to provide Philadelphia high school students and their families with the tools needed to generate greater wealth and achieve financial empowerment. The program combines:

Education for students

Students learn how to make smart financial decisions, budget, and save for the future through our financial literacy program, which is delivered by teachers in the classroom.

Entrepreneurship incubator

Students learn how to develop a business plan, while thinking critically and creatively, through an after-school program powered by our employees and Wharton School students.

Education for adults

Parents, caregivers and community members learn about various financial topics, like smart shopping, saving for life events and investing basics, through our adult education program.

Investing in employee civic engagement

We provide our employees with the resources they need to be more civically engaged: 

Employee volunteer program

We offer monthly volunteer opportunities plus ongoing in-office events with partners like Achieve Now. Employees may participate in three paid days of community service each year.

Matching charitable gifts

We support our employees in their personal charitable giving by offering a 1:1 match to contributions made to qualifying 501(c)(3) organizations.

Board placement

For those interested in serving on non-profit boards, we offer board training and placement opportunities.
