Donor Advised Funds

Donor advised funds are simple, cost-effective philanthropic solution owned and operated by an independent entity and advised by you - delivering all the benefits of charitable giving.  A DAF can have the look and feel of a private family foundation or stand-alone 501(c)(3) without the administrative burden, cost, and fiscal responsibility. This vehicle is typically best suited for clients that wish to self-fund the charitable account.


The startup of a nonprofit  is a new and exciting frontier that requires a team approach by those who are deeply entrenched in the particularities of philanthropy and charitable giving. Our firm gives you an holistic approach, so your organization can thrive, be sustainable and ultimately have impact with your mission.

Fiscal Sponsorships

Fiscal sponsorships are formal arrangements whereby a sponsor, sponsors your charitable project or mission that may lack 501(c)(3) status. This allows you, on behalf of your charitable mission, to seek grants, hold fundraisers, and solicit tax-deductible donations under the sponsors exempt status for the benefit of your charitable mission.  This vehicle is typically best suited for clients that wish to use other sources of revenue, including but not limited to self-funding, to carry out the charitable mission.

Private Foundations

Private foundations are nonprofit organizations which are usually created via a single primary donation from an individual or a business and whose funds and programs are managed by its own trustees or directors.

Public charities

Public charities are  charitable organizations that (a) have broad public support, (b) actively functions to support another public charity, or (c) is devoted exclusively to testing for public safety. Many public charities rely on contributions from the general public to sustain their organization in pursuit of a charitable mission.
