Find the right tool for you
We are a community foundation
bound by principles
We set ourselves apart not by geography, but by our focus on preserving donor intent and with our shared commitment to supporting organizations that do not rely on government funds to meet their charitable objectives. We – and the conservative- and libertarian-minded donors with whom we work – believe in preserving the ideals of limited government, personal responsibility, and free enterprise.
Since our founding in 1999, DonorsTrust has granted out over $1.5 billion to over 2,200 charities. These charities protect our constitutional liberties and strengthen civil society without expanding government. Our clients meet this challenge by giving generously to public policy organizations and also to organizations relating to social welfare, religion, health, the environment, economics, governance, foreign relations, and arts and culture.
We believe the key to solving society’s problems comes from donors like you engaged in private philanthropy.
