Supporting Foundations

Meeting your unique philanthropic goals requires careful consideration. Supporting Foundations can offer a good solution for families and businesses who want to make a strategic investment in philanthropy.

Usually with assets starting at $5 million, Supporting Foundations are driven by the donors’ interests. Each benefits from their affiliation with The Columbus Foundation, a public charity, and avoid many of the restrictions associated with a private foundation. Supporting Foundations are governed by their own separate board of trustees.

With more than 30 years of experience in working with Supporting Foundations, we provide individual attention and offer a range of management services which allows you to focus on your grantmaking.

Our services include:

  • Professional staffing – experts in all areas of foundation management
  • Access to community knowledge and research
  • Grant distribution and oversight
  • Flexible investment options
  • Administrative support
