When is it sensible to set up a foundation?

Foundations are always sensible – however large or small the endowment may be. The challenge in respect to foundations is to find the most efficient form. Here, the spectrum extends from a personal, independent foundation, through to a one-time donation to an existing foundation.

Your advantage with the FdF:

As an umbrella foundation, FdF offers dependent foundations and smaller endowments a system of administrative pooling, asset management and project support.
