    Ways to Give



    Private Foundation PARTNER

    Many families who have private foundations find it useful to also have a donor-advised fund to diversity their giving vehicles and maximize the tax benefits of their philanthropy. In some cases, your clients may wish to convert a private foundation into a component fund within The Community Foundation. This enables your client to retain the name and purpose of the private foundation while also taking advantage of the tax benefits.
