About the CFOS Foundation
The CFOS Foundation was launched in 2007 by the partners of CFO Selections. The individuals strongly believe in the concept that even small companies have an obligation to re-invest in the communities from which they earn their living. The funding, however, is only a starting point. It is also the dream of the founders to offer scarce and valuable executive time and talent to recipient organizations. Through the network connections of its advisory board, partners, and professional affiliations, the CFOS Foundation supports and encourages volunteerism among executives to dedicate their time and talent to our recipient organizations, thus multiplying the effect of the treasure.
The CFOS Foundation is directed by a community-controlled advisory board made up of community leaders and CFOS representatives. The board is solely responsible for assessing grant applications and making grant recommendations to The Seattle Foundation, and is governed by a code of ethics.
The Foundation relies on the participation of all its Board members and looks forward to continuing our mission of “Focusing on programs that further the well-being, specifically, of foster children” for many years to come.

Accordingly, contributions to the Fund are treated for tax purposes as gifts to a Section 501(c)(3) public charity and are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
