Together We Can Make
Your Philanthropic Dreams a Reality
The Foundation makes it easy to manage your giving and make a lasting difference.
Together, we can transform lives. Here’s how to get started…
To clarify your philanthropic goals and the optimal way to achieve them, consider where and how you wish to make an impact. Assess your preferred level of involvement in the grant making process along with the potential involvement of family members or other advisors.
Are you seeking any particular tax or estate planning benefits? The Foundation can provide information on the advantages of different types of gifts. Work with a financial advisor to evaluate the optimal way to maximize your philanthropy within the broader context of your overall financial planning.
Contribute to a Fund
Based on your answers to the previous questions, the Foundation will work with you to create a fund that best achieves your goals. If an existing Foundation fund meets your needs, contributions can be made to it directly without completing a new fund agreement.
