A few questions:
How many Foundings have there been?
When do the High Lords of Terra order a new Founding?
How many new Chapters are made in each Founding?
I'm not too sure about the first two questions but as for the last, I would think that the number of chapters founded would vary in accordence with the present circumstances.

Not too sure on the first one..as far as the second and thrid, basicly the important people on Terra order up another batch of Marines whenever they need more marines. Since marines are supposedly the super elite greatest warriors in the imperium,the High Lords generaly only order another founding when the number of marines running around gets dangerously low.The number of chatpers created I think depends on how serious the situation is like Invictus said.

There have reportedly been 26 foundings so far.
M31- FIRST- PROGENITOR. (?)- Legions made up from gene seed samples of the primarchs, even while primarchs scattered and undiscovered.
M31- SECOND- PRIMOGENITOR. (30,021)- Legions split up into chapters. It is unclear whether new chapters were built up from gene seed as well.
????- THIRTEENTH- DARK FOUNDING. Unknown number or fate of chapters.
M36? TWENTY-FIRST. Known as the Cursed Founding. Occurs shortly before the age of apostasy (which was in early M36).
M41- (40, 736)- TWENTY-SIXTH.
Astartes Praeses- a group of 20 chapters formed with the express purpose of of guarding the Eye of Terror.

It is said that ultramarines have 23 succesor chapters, blood angels have around 5 or 6 and the imperial fists have two. and i dont know about the rest...
The question I think was about official foundings,not the number of chapters,it's stated in several places that nobody really knows how many chapters really exist,because you have chapters breaking off from eachother and starting new chapters all the time.If there were only two Imperial fists's sucessor chapters,that would mean everybody who has a Imperial fist,Crimson Fist,or Black templars sucessor army would have an army that techinicly doesn't exist. O.o
