Private Family Foundation
What is a private family foundation? An option for managing a family-based legacy of giving.
A private family foundation is a type of private foundation set up by a family, funded with the family’s assets and often run by family members who can also participate in its charitable grantmaking. It can last as long as the family needs it to serve its philanthropic ambitions, and it can adapt as the family’s composition and charitable focus change.
A private family foundation is one way to create a framework for giving that can enable you to establish a philanthropic legacy. It can also provide income tax and estate tax benefits, though other types of charitable giving vehicles, such as donor-advised funds, may provide more.
