Set up Your Own Foundation Today
Enjoy all the Benefits of having a Public Foundation
TCN is about helping individuals, families and businesses set up their own foundations to help provide valuable services to those in need and to support community efforts that will have a significant impact on the well-being of the people in the community. TCN allows you to perform as a public charity without having to perform all of the administrative and compliance functions that you would have to perform yourself if you had your own public foundation. You can go about performing your own fund-raising, running the day to day functions of your foundation and we will perform all of the book-keeping and administrative functions.
You just need to follow our simple rules that are clearly described in our Foundation Guidebook. You will also have access to the very best fund-raising tools such as charitable remainder trusts, charitable gift annuities and pooled income funds. We will help you to design your own fund-raising program and by referring others to TCN, you will also have a built-in donation plan that will help you finance your foundation activities.
You have a choice of two types of Foundations:
1: A “Field of Interest Foundation” which allows you to perform all of the functions of a public foundation, and you can work for your foundation anywhere in the world and be paid for your time and effort, as described in the TCN Guide Book. You can raise funds from individuals, businesses, institutions and any grant making organizations.
2: A “Family Foundation” which allows you to make donations to your foundation and then later on make distributions or donations to other charitable programs anywhere in the world. Although you can raise funds from others, most people with family foundations make most of the donations themselves, or receive donations from businesses that they may own or control. You or family members cannot receive compensation from your own family foundation.
