The Phoenix Foundation conducts (mostly) under the radar charitable or other (legal) operations anywhere in the world where we identify a need that we are uniquely qualified to address. At other times we become involved simply because no one else appears willing to step in.

We seek committed, highly skilled volunteers in many disciplines who are willing and able to work without compensation. Some of our agents also self fund or supplement their missions at times.

Agents work alone or within centrally managed teams, depending on the assignment. Agents are encouraged to propose missions and seek funding through the Foundation and / or other sources that may be available to them.

Many agents contribute to a common funding pool that is run in the same manner as an investment club under rules established by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. Agents act as club members and vote on how these funds should be employed (invested) in our missions.

If you would like to volunteer for consideration to become a covert agent for The Phoenix Foundation, please send a letter of interest and your resume via email to  

You may also include letters of reference or any other documents you believe demonstrate your unique ability to fulfill our needs.

Applicants must agree to allow TPF to conduct a full background check, should your application be selected to advance beyond the initial screening. TPF will only respond to those applicants who appear to suit our needs due to skill sets and / or geographical location.

Strength of character and soundness of mind are essential commodities common to all accepted candidates. Phase three of the screening process will include comprehensive psychological and stress testing.  Physical fitness requirements are mission dependent and lack of such is not an automatic disqualifier. A healthy and intelligent mind is sometimes all that is needed.

Former members of military special forces from any nation are especially encouraged to apply.  Highly advanced computer, networking  and cyber-security skills are also in demand.

Applications will remain on file for three years. If you have not received a response after three years, feel free to reapply. The vast majority of applicants are screened out after examining the submitted application materials. 

Please do not contact us to enquire about the status of your application. Doing so will immediately remove you from consideration and replies will not be sent.

Agents who are compromised in the field or whose actions attract media attention that identifies them and associates them with the Foundation will be terminated. The Foundation will disavow any knowledge of their activities.

"Officially", The Phoenix Foundation does not exist. It is a fictional organization. That's our story and we are sticking to it, despite whatever evidence to the contrary anyone may claim to possess.
