A private foundation is created as an independent organization and funded by a donor to facilitate their family’s contributions to charity and achieve one or more of their family’s charitable objectives. Whether established during a donor’s lifetime or at death, a private foundation allows a family to maintain control over the assets gifted to a charity and the activities of the charity.
How They Work
- A private foundation can be structured as either a corporation or a trust.
- The Donor irrevocably contributes cash, securities, personal property, or tangible personal property to the foundation.
- The foundation is required to distribute 5% of the value of its assets annually to the charity.
