As part of our foundation management services, we support the daily operations and management of family and corporate foundations. By working with our team, foundations are able to outsource many of the day-to-day management and administrative burdens that would otherwise rest with their leaders and staff depleting the team of valuable time that could otherwise be focused on achieving the foundation’s mission. Our team allows the foundation’s management team to know that their foundation is being responsibly managed. We offer a range of specific services, including:
Our team assists in all matters of governance including coordinating and staffing your Board meetings, reviewing all contracts, supervising audit and tax return preparation, and coordinating any necessary state filings.
A customized, user-friendly online portal offers the ability to connect your entire philanthropic community, including family members, financial advisors, accountants and other stakeholders. The portal allows reporting on valuable foundation activity, and serves as a data vault for governance documents, returns and other reports.
Help Desk Support
Our dedicated call center, open on weekdays from 8 am to 8 pm, is staffed with dedicated philanthropy professionals who can assist you and your stakeholders with accessing and navigating the online portal, grant management, making new grants, due diligence issues, grant processing and more.
