Community Foundation v. Private Foundation

How Do They Compare?

If your client is thinking about establishing a private foundation, consider a Donor Advised Fund at the Community Foundation.  It is a simple, less expensive alternative to a private foundation.

Advantages include greater tax benefits, fewer administrative requirements, no minimum annual required payout, and the potential for anonymity, as well as grantmaking assistance from our professional staff who have knowledge of the more than 400 nonprofits in the area.  With a donor advised fund, we handle the administrative, accounting, legal, and reporting requirements, so your client can focus on the joy of giving.
