Private Family Foundations Attorney

Family Foundations are the gold standard in charitable giving. Once the exclusive province of the ultra-wealthy, interest in this charitable giving vehicle has become widespread. Private foundations are generally founded by an individual, a family, or a group of individuals, and are organized either as a nonprofit corporation or as a charitable trust.

Family Foundations Possess Powerful Advantages:

  • Families can use the foundation to work toward common goals.
  • Foundations help instill the value of charitable giving in families.
  • Family members and Friends can be appointed to sit on the Board.
  • Assets donated to a foundation are generally not subject to estate taxes.
  • Donors can remain in control of the investment and management of the funds.
  • Donors can remain in control of the final charitable disposition of the donations.
  • Grant making may bring recognition to the family's philanthropy and keep the memory of a loved one alive.
  • With the exception of the 1-2% excise tax on net investment income, the investment income of a family foundation is exempt from income taxation.
