A foundation represents a powerful commitment to do charitable good. Our research provides guidance -
For potential donors on:

  1. Comparing the benefits of a foundation with those of other charitable alternatives, and
  2. Establishing a family philanthropic legacy without compromising personal lifestyle

For directors and trustees on:

  1. Identifying asset-allocation and gifting policies that best match charitable objectives,
  2. Determining whether "perpetuity" is a realistic goal, and
  3. Managing the trade-offs among asset growth and the amount and stability of distributions
