We Offer Tax Services for Foundations and Philanthropic Families
We advance beliefs bigger than ourselves. Our expert solutions take the guesswork out of foundation tax returns and accounting, allowing you to concentrate on what matters most – to do more good in the world.
Foundation Tax Preparation
Every year, private foundations are required to submit a tax return on IRS Form 990-PF. We partner with you to ensure that your foundation tax return, as well as your annual state filings and registrations, are filed securely, correctly, and on time. We take more weight off your shoulders by providing grant due diligence and by calculating your foundation's annual minimum distribution requirements. To better assist you, we archive your prior year tax returns and supporting documentation. We also provide you with knowledgeable guidance on how to efficiently operate your foundation.

Do people donate to charity for the tax deduction?
The primary reason people give to charity is not to take advantage of tax deductions. Very simple arithmetic shows this cannot be true.
The Truth About Overhead Ratios
The overhead ratio is a useful tool for private foundations carrying out due diligence in their grant making process. Evaluating the effectiveness of nonprofits is very difficult and analyzing overhead is just one piece of the puzzle. Every nonprofit charity needs a balanced amount of overhead to operate its charitable programs and to invest in crucial systems, talent, and training.
Effectiveness for Private Foundations—the Obscured North Star
It is said that effectiveness should be the North Star for private foundations—unfortunately this guiding light is difficult to follow. Foundation leaders must blend together art and science to course correct and help inform where future resources should be deployed.

Private foundations can provide support to nonprofits in the form of restricted grants or unrestricted grants. Providing unrestricted grants is good policy whenever possible.
