Private Foundation Conversions

A fund at the Community Foundation provides an attractive alternative to a private foundation. Creating and maintaining a private foundation involves many regulatory requirements and administrative burdens. Our professional staff takes care of all administrative and grantmaking activities, allowing your clients to focus on the rewarding task of supporting their favorite causes. As part of a public charity, a fund at the Community Foundation offers greater tax benefits.

If your client has a private foundation already, it is not too late to take advantage of the Community Foundation's services. Our staff has extensive experience facilitating the transition of all or part of the assets of a private foundation to a donor-advised fund.
