How the Private Giving Foundation works
We make private giving easy to get started. Here's how:
Open a donor-advised account
Start with an irrevocable contribution of $10,000 or more to us. You can make optional donations of $1,000 or more at any time to keep giving to your cause(s). We accept cash, securities or both.
Choose your charity
Pick the charity that matters most to you. Not sure where to start? Check out our six-step planning model to help guide you on who to give.
Make a grant
You decide the amount to give, and we'll provide the grant on your behalf from your donor-advised account.
Get your statements and tax receipts
We'll take care of the administrative details. You'll get statements showing your contributions and grants to track your giving and tax receipts to claim your charitable donations.
