A partnership to simplify giving
The Center for Personal Philanthropy offers smart, forward-thinking charitable solutions, philanthropic expertise and highly personalized services that simplify the process of charitable giving for families and individuals. Whether your goal is to make an immediate impact, address an ongoing need or create a permanent legacy, we work in partnership with you, your family and your advisors to amplify the experience of philanthropy and ensure the greatest impact for the community. A partnership with FFTC can maximize tax benefits and ease the burden of administration, freeing you to focus on your charitable goals.

Exceptional flexibility in how we accept assets
FFTC charitable funds are easy to establish with a wide variety of assets. Whether your gift is in the form of a liquid asset — such as cash or stock — or a more complex asset, our expertise, guidance and diverse investment options can simplify your charitable giving and help your fund grow over time. We facilitate gifts of real estate and non-voting business interests through our subsidiary foundations, Community Real Property Holdings, Inc. and Community Investments Foundation, allowing you access to these valuable assets with immediate tax benefits.

Opportunity to build a permanent legacy
FFTC offers a unique combination of personal service, local resources and expert guidance to help you establish a legacy as you pass the tradition of philanthropy to the next generation. We offer effective solutions and expert counsel, working with you and your professional advisors to structure estate gifts and create charitable plans that are fully integrated with major business, personal and financial goals. Flexible succession plans offer continuous stewardship and ensure that your commitment to the communities and causes you support will be honored for years to come.

Customized philanthropic services
FFTC offers specially designed services to meet the unique needs of larger funds, private foundations and subsidiary foundations. Our custom service platform offers additional support from dedicated FFTC experts in the areas of governance, investments, grantmaking and evaluation. We convene and engage family members and their designated advisors to help identify philanthropic missions, and to implement grant programs that address issues important to you.
