About Foundation Group

At Foundation Group, we focus on just one goal:
Helping nonprofits thrive!

Our expertise in 501(c)(3) nonprofit formation, bookkeeping, plus state and federal tax and compliance filings helps nonprofit leaders make better decisions, reduce risk, and grow their organizations.

Our History

Foundation Group was started in 1995 in Nashville, Tennessee, by our founder and CEO, Greg McRay.  From then until now, his vision has remained the same:  to bring expert formation and compliance services to the under-served community of small to medium-sized nonprofits.

What began as a two man shop back then has grown to over 35 dedicated professionals serving thousands of nonprofits, all across the country, each and every year.  Our team members are truly subject-matter experts who are laser-focused on providing exactly what our clients need to succeed.

Our Mission

“Inspiring and Empowering Nonprofit Success”

Our Core Commitments

To develop and provide essential knowledge, resources, and professional services unique to the needs of the nonprofit community

To provide our clients a path to achieve their dream and their mission through establishing a firm foundation, and adhering to the principles of transparency, compliance, and best practices

To work toward the long-term growth and success of our clients, our company, and our team members

To encourage and honor the Biblical principles of charity (Matthew 22:39, I Corinthians 13:13, Philippians 2:3, 1 Peter 3:8)

Our Team

We’re incredibly proud of our career professionals who bring the “A” game, everyday, to the benefit and success of our clients.  Unlike a lot of companies, we don’t sub-out our work to a network of independent contractors.  Our team is right here in beautiful Nashville, Tennessee:  real people, doing great work, for amazing organizations.
