Mar 21, 2022

Making the philanthropic decision between a donor advised fund and a private foundation boils down to three main factors.  In this episode of the PFP Section podcast, Paul Hood, LL.M, JD, breaks down key differences between these charitable giving strategies and the factors to guide your conversations with clients, including:

  • The level of contribution or investment
  • The importance of retaining control
  • The family’s ability and willingness to participate in the administration
  • Other considerations like set up costs and management and compliance fees
