Advising Business Owners Who Want To Establish a Private Foundation

Andrea L. Kushner and Jennifer R. Ostberg examine different structures philanthropic business owners can use to make their gifts.

Business owners know that part of their success is attributed to the communities where they interact and operate. Because of those community ties, many feel both a desire and an obligation to give back. Some may volunteer their time, while others may make significant contributions to local organizations or even offer scholarships to local residents. They may show their appreciation through a single, one-time gesture or decide they would like to establish a longer term philanthropic program.
