Donor-Advised Funds v. Private Foundations

Make the Comparison

If you are thinking about establishing a private foundation, consider a Donor Advised Fund at the Community Foundation.  It is an 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 500 nonprofits in the area.  With a donor advised fund, we handle the administrative, accounting, legal, and reporting requirements, so you can focus on the joy of giving.DAF v PF
