Why Start a Foundation?
What is the best way for you and your family to create a lasting legacy? Starting a foundation is one answer. Whether it’s the right answer is what we help our clients fully explore. Heading that effort is Jeanne Goussev, head of Fiduciary Services here at LNWM. Last week, Jeanne was featured in the Puget Sound Business Journal’s Non-profits and Philanthropy issue, in an article by Melissa Crowe. In that, Jeanne explained that foundations are a way to connect family with legacy, and do not have to be the only answer. Some people back donor-advised funds, says Jeanne, along with their own foundation. For more on Donor-Advised funds, read this post by LNWM’s Brian Whitaker.
