Funding Resources

Community Foundations in New York State: The Foundation Center has comprehensive information on institutional philathropy. The web site defines a community foundation as much like a private foundation; its funds, however, are derived from many donors rather than a single source, as is usually the case with private foundations. Further, community foundations are usually classified under the tax code as public charities and therefore are subject to different rules and regulations than those which govern private foundations.
