How can my organization find other grantmakers or potential grantees working in our areas of interest?

It is always a good idea to know about other organizations and funders working in the same areas as you. You may wish to collaborate, check out an innovative program, or model a grant after another organization’s efforts. This is also a good way to connect with thought leaders in your areas of interest.

How do I learn about dissolving a private foundation?

Most foundations are set up to have a perpetual life-span, spending out only the interests from their investments while keeping the initial endowment intact. Other foundations choose to have a limited life-span. Regardless of the reason for the termination, foundations dissolve by "spending down" their assets in compliance with both state and federal law.
