Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support
Council on Foundations members include independent, operating, community, public, and corporate foundations, as well as corporate giving programs in the United States and abroad. Through its annual conference, regional issue-based salons, online Philanthropy Exchange platform, and other offerings, the council aims to “provide the opportunity, leadership, and tools needed by philanthropic organizations to expand, enhance, and sustain their ability to advance the common good.” With this grant, we provide general operating support.
for work on the regulatory approval of a repository of equivalency determinations
The Council on Foundations has been supporting the development of a centralized repository of equivalency determinations by working with the Internal Revenue Service to get regulatory approval of a centralized repository of equivalency determinations. This would allow grantmakers to rely on the repository in lieu of a legal opinion, which is required today. This project is further described in the TechSoup Global proposal #7753.
