Private Foundations: A Powerful Way of Expressing A Powerful Personal Vision

Philanthropy is personal. Your desire to establish a foundation undoubtedly comes from a dream, a passion and a deeply rooted inspiration, motivation or conviction. A private foundation is a way of expressing your wishes and carrying out your dreams. It enables you to put your assets to work supporting individuals, organizations or causes that are making a difference in your community and in the world. Your foundation will enable you to impact lives, create a better tomorrow and make a mark in this world in a notably powerful, altruistic way.

Foundation Management

Accion Group makes having a private foundation easy, rewarding and worry-free. A strong foundation is rooted in a personal vision for a better world and a better tomorrow. The Accion Group can help your ideas flourish and make a lasting impact for generations to come. Our team is committed to managing your foundation so you are able to focus on your charitable interests without the burdensome how-to’s, operations, regulations and paperwork.

Typically, we create a new foundation in as little as 72 hours. We arrange for the creation of the not-for-profit corporation articles (which is the legal status of a foundation), secure the tax identification number, and submit the application for tax-exempt status. Initial bylaws and articles give you maximum control and maximum flexibility. These can later be amended at any time as you develop and refine your views on how you want your foundation to operate.

To create a new foundation, you need only complete and sign a one-page application, and pay a low, all inclusive creation fee. Only three simple decisions are required on your part: what to call the foundation, whom to name as the initial directors, and the amount to start your foundation with. The Accion Group manages all of that behind the scenes activities and leaves you worry-free to focus on the important issue: how to make a difference and make the world a better place for tomorrow.
