Supporting Organizations

High Impact, High Involvement, Low Hassle

A supporting organization is an excellent alternative to a private foundation–with only a fraction of the administrative responsibilities. You select some of the board members, maintain personal involvement, and support the causes you care about most while enjoying the favorable tax treatment of a public charity. Leave investment management, startup costs, grant administration, and reporting to your community foundation.

There is so much more we’d like you to know.

For more information and ideas on ways to integrate your financial planning with charitable giving, ask your financial advisor or contact the Cadillac Area Community Foundation.
