Reduced Income Tax Is Just the Beginning

Explore the financial advantages of a private foundation

There are many philanthropic reasons why a donor might establish a private foundation, but there are also short-term and longterm tax benefits to consider. Donors may be able to take advantage of four main tax benefits when making donations to a private foundation:

  • Tax-advantaged growth of assets contributed to the foundation;
  • Avoidance of capital gains taxes for appreciated assets; and
  • Reduction or elimination of potential estate taxes.
