Hirsch Philanthropy Partners guides individuals, couples, and families in understanding, creating, and managing the best giving vehicle for you — allowing for deliberate charitable investments through foundations, donor-advised funds, and other vehicles. Leveraging our system and team efficiencies, we navigate start-up, direct operations, and oversee strategic grantmaking.
Our customized management services include day-to-day oversight of funds or foundations; grant systems administration; board management; and clarifying mission, values and priorities. As you build your legacy, our support is able to grow with you. From handling the nuts and bolts to envisioning the big picture, Hirsch creates space for philanthropists to focus on the most satisfying aspects of giving while creating effective outcomes.
How We Help
Deciding on the right type of giving vehicle is a critical first step. We help you assess the options and facilitate compliance, working with attorneys and accountants to complete required paperwork and get your foundation or donor-advised fund up and running seamlessly.
A clear and focused strategy serves as the framework for your philanthropy. Together we co-create a plan of action and a tailored set of grant recommendations and/or portfolios that ensure your giving vehicle meets your goals.
From record-keeping to reporting, HR to accounting, foundations require significant infrastructure investments. Our team develops and implements internal operational systems — you may choose to administer these systems or you may want Hirsch to manage operations and reduce overhead.
A foundation’s board stewards its assets and reputation. We help build a strong board, facilitate regular meetings or retreats, and strengthen the skills and capacity of individual trustees.
We conduct due diligence, release grant funds, track how resources are spent, and work with financial advisors on all aspects of management. Our experienced and detail-oriented staff handle the nuances and requirements while also building trust and relationships with the community organizations you fund.
