Supporting Organizations

You can create an excellent alternative to a private foundation.

Established by an individual, family or business with a gift of at least $5 million, a supporting organization is a separate nonprofit corporation that qualifies as a public charity through its affiliation with the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation. We provide an array of philanthropic and administrative services to make the giving experience simple and enjoyable.

A supporting organization is:

  • An excellent alternative to a private foundation
  • Fewer administrative responsibilities
  • Lower cost
  • Select some board members, which may include family members
  • Maintain personal involvement
  • Retain your identity
  • Support cherished causes
  • Our skilled Finance & Investment Team will provide world class support
