Donor Advised Funds - a cost effective option
If you are considering reducing the time and expense of managing a private foundation, terminating your private foundation  and establishing  a donor advised fund at the Foundation is also a cost effective option.

A donor advised fund provides you with continuing grant making opportunities without the administrative and legal concerns of a private foundation.

Please refer to our comparison chart for more information.
