A private non-profit foundation for the services of the aging Fil-Am


Private Foundations.

private foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with few sources of funding and which makes grants to other charities rather than operating its own charitable services. Private foundations are often funded by a single individual, family, or corporation.


Private foundations are charitable organizations that do not qualify as public charities. In practice, they usually are nonprofits that were established with funds from a single source or specific sources, such as family or corporate money – instead of funding from the general public.


Private Non-ProfitsPrivate non-profit organizations receive financial support from only a few sources, such as a dedicated donor or investment income. In some cases, a private non-profit organization may receive a large portion of its funding from the individual who founded the organization.
