Private Foundation Alternatives

Running a private foundation comes with administrative hassles, endless solicitations and other obligations that can temper the joy of philanthropy. Partnering with the Community Foundation of Broward offers a simpler way to accomplish your charitable goals.

Whether you are just getting started with philanthropy or already have a private foundation, the Community Foundation can maximize your charitable impact – while you get to focus on the joy of philanthropy.

“I get all the administrative services of a private foundation plus the Community Foundation’s unmatched expertise to amplify my impact. I love how they make it easy to involve my children and grow our family’s philanthropy.”
- Doria Camaraza, Community Foundation Fundholder
“I don’t have the time to research all the important issues, so we moved a significant portion of our family foundation assets to the Community Foundation of Broward. Now the Community Foundation team comes to me with expertly selected opportunities to make a difference on the issues I care about. They also measure the impact created by every gift I give, which is how they make sure my philanthropy is truly effective.”
- Steve Hudson, of the Hudson Family Foundation, who is a Community Foundation Fundholder and Community Builder
