The life of a man consists not in seeing visions and in dreaming dreams, but in active charity and in willing service.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
American poet and educator



Since inception, the Foundation has donated to over 700 charities.

The Sun Capital Partners Foundation, Inc. was established in 2007 by Marc J. Leder and Rodger R.

Goals Achieved, Lives Improved, And Our Communities Strengthened.

Through the dedication of our enthusiastic donors, we’re honored to support the good work of local and global non-profits and educational institutions, while also responding to urgent relief efforts stemming from events such as Hurricane Sandy and the Haiti earthquake.


The Foundation’s mission remains closely tied to the Sun Capital Partners culture of integrity, fairness, commitment and passion. To reinforce this connection, charitable contributions by Sun Capital Partners employees are amplified through a 3x matching gift program.


The Foundation’s Charity Committee carefully evaluates potential charitable partners to ensure the funding we provide will be put to use effectively and have impact. By working hand-in-hand with our sponsored causes, we are rewarded by seeing goals achieved, lives improved, and our communities strengthened.
