Are you considering establishing a private foundation?

Consider a donor advised fund instead. Advantages include lower cost, less paperwork, philanthropic advising staff to help with grantee reporting and scholarship IRS requirements,  no mandated minimum annual grant requirement, and the ability to remain anonymous and give anonymous grants when desired.
