What are the advantages of establishing funds through the Community Foundation?

With the Community Foundation, donors can achieve their charitable goals without the overhead, costs, tax disincentives, federal compliance difficulties, and administrative burdens that accompany private foundations. The Community Foundation provides thorough assessment of grant-seeking organizations and professional management of invested funds. There is great flexibility in how donors may participate in the distribution of grants. The funds will be permanent, and will continue to have philanthropic impact long after the lifetime of the donor.
