The Fundamentals of a Mission and Guidelines

An individual donor who decides to form a family foundation or set up a family fund is taking the plunge into a new world. This is one of the most exciting adventures in philanthropy – the birth of a unique charitable organization, unlike any other. To quote one family foundation trustee: “It is a time of enormous hope and possibility.” The organization is ready for the founder or founders to mold it, to put their stamp on it, to shape it according to their ideals and passions; and everything is still possible.
