About this event

Private foundations are required by law to distribute a percentage of their assets on an annual basis, but the calculations are often complex, and many foundations miss out on critical opportunities to preserve their corpus and plan for the future.

Join us for this training to discuss strategies for managing the annual private foundation payout requirement. We'll walk through the mechanics of the annual payout, discuss various payout strategies used by foundations to accomplish their charitable goals and other tax considerations before the foundation’s year-end.

This training will discuss:

  • Calculation of the annual private foundation payout requirement
  • Strategies and opportunities for valuing alternative investments
  • Reminder of what types of expenses count towards the annual payout requirement
  • Strategies for planning ahead to accomplish charitable goals and maintaining an endowment for the future
