10 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do with a Private Foundation

You probably know that you can use a private foundation to make donations to charities and get significant tax benefits, but that’s just the beginning.

A private foundation isn’t an account at a financial institution—it’s an independent legal entity that’s under your control. That’s why you can do things with a private foundation that you could never do with a checkbook or even a different charitable vehicle. Download our Free article, 10 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do with Your Foundation, to learn about the many things you can do, such as:

  • Giving directly to individuals and families in need with tax-advantaged dollars
  • Running your own charitable programs without setting up a separate nonprofit
  • Reimbursing charitable expenses for board meetings and site visits
  • Making loans to nonprofits and “recycling” those same dollars for the benefit of multiple organizations
  • And much more!

Whether you want to prevent drug addiction in your community, find a cure for a rare disease, give scholarships, or empower women in the developing world, a private foundation gives you the flexibility and power to really move the needle. And you don’t have to have Bill Gates’ resources to do it.
