Tav Lupton, Treasurer of TC Lupton, Jr. Family Foundation “I’ve been using CFT in conjunction with our private family foundation for a while now. I like working with CFT for a number of reasons:
- No time pressure. Working with CFT gets me off the clock. With private foundation, we have to distribute 5% in a certain time, and with CFT, I don’t have a deadline. Without time pressure, I have more time to be strategic with my giving.
- Efficiency. We’re a small-staffed foundation. We don’t have the staff to be able to process grants as efficiently as CFT.
- Community knowledge. I’ve always relied on CFT as a resource. When someone sends us something that looks interesting, but we don’t know much about it, I can call on CFT. CFT usually knows about it or can quickly do the research. Our private foundation doesn’t keep records on local nonprofits so it’s very helpful to rely on CFT’s community knowledge.
