Personalize your approach to giving.

Establishing a donor advised fund allows you to make a gift to Placer Community Foundation and remain actively involved in suggesting uses for your gift. You can work with our professionals to make grant recommendations now or in the future. And if you endow your gift, it becomes a permanent source of community support.

Private Foundation Alternative

A donor advised fund at Placer Community Foundation is an excellent alternative to a private foundation, with only a fraction of the administrative responsibilities. You maintain personal involvement and support the causes you care about most while enjoying the favorable tax treatment of a public charity. We take care of investment management, startup costs, grant administration, and reporting. A supporting organization fund is another possible alternative.
