Should I Start my Own Foundation?
If you have less than $10 million, a community foundation is usually a more efficient and economically effective option. Other perks: Greater tax advantages and less administrative work.
What is endowment? When you create a charitable fund through your community foundation, you have the opportunity to benefit the community forever with a permanent endowment. Your gift is invested over time. Earnings from your fund are used to make grants addressing community needs. Your gift—and all future earnings from your gift—is a permanent source of community capital, helping do good work today and in the future.
