What does COMMON Foundation do for its projects?

COMMON Foundation offers a full suite of in-house consulting and mentoring services and takes care of all legal, operational, administrative and financial obligations related to managing and operating a 501(c)(3) organization.

We also offer in-house consulting services for an additional fee but at a rate much lower than available for external clients. We do not fundraise as each project has their own network of connections, but we do review grant applications, contracts, and fundraising documents when requested. We also consult for our internal and external partners and clients by offering philanthropic advising, mentoring, non-profit strategies, donor-advised funds, legacy research and development, scholarship program development, and a full suite of specialized services.
