Toledo Community Foundation

Center for Private & Family Foundations

To maximize the impact of their community investments and operate efficiently, individuals, families, businesses and nonprofit agencies turn to the professionals at Toledo Community Foundation.

Through this Center, as the name implies, TCF provides assistance to private and family foundations and to corporate and nonprofit organizations' grant making programs.

Clients using the Center for Private and Family Foundations do so for a variety of reasons like:

  • A Foundation sought the grant management services of TCF's Center for Private and Family Foundations instead of replacing staff and investing in new computer software to manage these responsibilities;
  • Another Foundation uses TCF's Center for Private and Family Foundations on an ongoing basis to provide research and reporting for current grant requests from the Toledo area. With this relationship, this Foundation has access to TCF's extensive knowledge of community needs and local nonprofits. This information assists the trustees in making informed funding decisions and avoids duplicating staff efforts.
  • An agency Supporting Organization (a separate nonprofit entity) uses TCF's Center for Private and Family Foundations to provide numerous administrative services for its grant making program. This helps the organization detach the functions of its Supporting Organization from its agency programs and functions.

The Foundation has 45 years of experience in administering all aspects of grant making programs. With its skilled professional staff it is uniquely positioned to provide a broad range of advisory, organizational and administrative services to other entities involved in organized philanthropy.
