Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"….is a handy how-to reference for stewards of these charitable arms, bound as they are by the IRS Code and regulations. The book is organized with an eye to procedural questions, from organizing and applying for tax-exempt status to managing mandatory distribution, to reporting annually to the IRS, to winding up a foundation's affairs." (Journal of Accountancy, April 1st, 2009)

"It is written in a clean and direct style, and builds logically from fundamental concepts and explanations to more complex organizational and legal issues. The authors have produced a most impressive offering in this third edition. Its appearance is both timely and welcome. Highly recommended." (Estate Planning, February 2009)
