Private Foundation Dues

Back to Dues Model Page

Private Foundation Dues

Private foundation member dues are assessed based on assets. By assessing dues based on assets rather than on giving budgets, private foundation dues do not increase in years when the foundation releases a larger payout of grant funds. This provides more comparable dues between similar size foundations.

Private foundations self-report assets from their most recent completed fiscal year; this figure is generally found on 990PF, Page 2, Part II, Column (c), Line 16.

Under $1,000,000
