Private Operating Foundations

Operating foundations are private foundations that use the bulk of their income to provide charitable services or to run charitable programs of their own. They make few, if any, grants to outside organizations. To qualify as an operating foundation, specific rules, in addition to the applicable rules for private foundations, must be followed.

Join us for a webinar sponsored by the Military Family Research Institute at Purdue University to learn more about access to care for military veterans and their families. This webinar will explore the scientific realities behind an important policy issue. Specific topics will include the barriers to care, access to care, the behavioral health work force, and family focused systems of care. The goal of this webinar is not to make specific policy recommendations but rather to increase the impact of science in policy.

Are you new to philanthropy and unsure about the due diligence process for making a successful grant? Have you been in the field for several years, but are still unclear on the legal aspects of grantmaking or how to spot red flags in grantee financial statements? If you answered "yes" to any of the above, please consider joining us for NCG's 2014 New Grantmakers Institute.

Communities across the country are experiencing rapid demographic shifts, and foundations that use place-based giving strategies must adapt their grantmaking to recognize these changes. Join us in a discussion about the multiple ways foundations define place-based philanthropy, its potential challenges and advantages, and the various approaches to this work.
