Administrative fees are used exclusively to support our mission-based operations. These fees are your investment in a 501(c)(3) public charity.
This administrative fee structure illustrates the annual cost for a charitable giving account, also known as a donor-advised fund. These fees are assessed to the fund on a monthly basis.
The monthly fee equals one-twelfth of the annual fee, based on the average fair market value of fund assets for the month. If there are no assets in the fund for the entire month, there is no fee. For newly established funds, the annual fee is prorated over the remainder of the year.
|Fund Assets up to $7 million||Annual Administrative Fee|
|first $500,000||1.00% or $250
(whichever is greater)
|next $2 million||0.30%|
|next $4 million||0.10%|
For funds with assets in excess of $7 million, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 866.627.3440.
Sample Fee Calculations
Fund assets of $10,000
$250 minimum fee applies
(1.00% of $10,000 is less than $250)
Total annual administrative fee = $250 ($21/month)
Fund assets of $30,000
1.00% fee on $30,000 = $300
Total annual administrative fee = $300 ($25/month)
Fund assets of $600,000
1.00% fee on the first $500,000 = $5,000
0.60% fee on the next $100,000 = $600
Total annual administrative fee = $5,600 ($467/month)
Funds may be charged for extraordinary services or direct expenses incurred on behalf of a specific fund, such as commissions for the sale of contributed stock or legal fees. For funds receiving a bequest that will be fully disbursed to one or more charities upon receipt, there will be a one-time 3% fee on such bequest.
