Partner with Us

Partner with a company committed to your legacy.

For most business owners, selling their company will be a defining moment in their life. Whether it’s a family-owned business that has been passed down through generations, or a company they’ve started from scratch, the key to selling depends upon your life goals and the lifecycle of your business.

Our Partners have faced many motivations when planning for their future.


Getting back to working with families instead of managing the business


No logical successor to take over and manage the business


Have the desire, but not the resources to expand the business


Looking to retire and enjoy life

Regardless of your motivation, Foundation Partners is here to help you preserve and grow your legacy into the future. With over 90 locations in 17 states serving over 21,000 families a year, we have the experience to understand your unique situation and the scale to help you reach your goals. However, we’re not so big that we haven’t forgotten your commitment to your community and the importance of your brand reputation.  Whether you choose to become part of our leadership team, or pursue your own path, Foundation Partners is committed to carrying on your legacy for generations to come.

At Foundation Partners, we marry the knowledge and compassion of longtime funeral home owners with the expertise of diverse business experts, ensuring you receive both the care and innovative insights your business needs to succeed. We avoid the cookie cutter approach and work with you to understand your business and community, while welcoming your ideas and leadership in developing programs tailored to your situation.  When you partner with us, you’ll have access to the resources, technology, products, services, training, and back office support you need to meet your goals.

John McQueen
Anderson-McQueen Funeral Homes

Jim Dobbins"As an owner of a progressive funeral home that had experienced quick growth, I was looking to partner with a company that could help take us to the next level. The knowledge and resources available from Foundation Partners allowed this to happen. I also knew that Foundation Partners would continue to run Simplicity in the ways that helped Simplicity grow in the first place. They didn't come in with plans to change everything; they wanted to help foster and build on the things that made us successful."

Jim Dobbins
Simplicity Lowcountry Cremation & Burial Services

"When my wife and I were considering a succession plan, faith in our partner was vital because we wanted to see our "baby" continue to succeed. We're so pleased to be a part of the Foundation Partners family. Knowing our business is in good hands gives us peace of mind, and the technology they bring to the table gives us the competitive edge in our community."

Clair Ferris
Funeral Alternatives of Washington

John J. Stewart"When four partners in a successful business are of similar age it severely diminishes the available options for succession planning. Foundation Partners Group allowed my three partners and I the opportunity to guarantee continued success for our business as well as to enhance our skills to provide a fabulous experience for the families we serve."
