Your Foundation Choices
Highly Valued. Long-term Funders.
Family foundations are growing in Canada, and Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) are increasingly becoming a popular option for families over the traditional private foundation structure.
Setting up a foundation structure gives you and your family much more control over how your gifts are managed and disbursed. Charities may change over time, and so may your interests or priorities. With a family foundation, you can manage how your gifts are spent, and can create a legacy of charitable giving for many generations.
A Canada Gives Donor Advised Fund "Foundation account" provides all the financial and philanthropic choices you would experience with a traditional private foundation but offers greater flexibility, privacy, and less time spent on setting up and administering the foundation; leaving your family with more time to become involved with the charities of your choice.
The following chart demonstrates the ease and flexibility of a Canada Gives DAF Foundation when compared to a traditional private foundation.
