Estate Planning: The tax benefits around setting up a family foundation
Alison and Phillip discuss the tax benefits of setting up a family foundation. They explain that a family foundation is a philanthropic organization designed to serve the community and can be a great estate planning tool. However, they note that setting up a foundation requires significant assets and comes with high administrative fees. They also mention alternatives such as donor-advised funds, which offer more flexibility and privacy. Overall, they highlight the importance of consulting with a qualified financial advisor or tax professional before making any decisions.

"I'd be cool to take something like a billion dollars and put it into a foundation and then be able to invest and buy and sell stuff without tax implications so I can use that capital to more benefit the charitable organizations I'm given to."
“The upside to the family foundation is that it's a great way to shift around assets to help your family in terms of estate planning and a great way to leave a legacy in honor of your family."
