Why Use LKM

Because Your Time is Valuable

When LKM manages your foundation, the time you spend on your philanthropy is more productive and satisfying. With LKM, you know:

  • Your foundation is operating in full compliance with the law
  • Your grants are being used in the way you intended to benefit the issues you care about
  • Your philanthropic investments are being evaluated and you know the results of your giving

Because LKM Provides All You Need

  • LKM offers a simple, complete management solution for private foundations. We are your office and your staff, always available to answer questions, staff the board of directors, respond to grantees, evaluate requests and research issues.

Because with LKM You Gain

  • Better Control of Overhead Costs: LKM provides all you need for managing your foundation. Our annual fee qualifies as a charitable administrative expense payable from within the minimum annual distribution of the foundation if you so choose.
  • Strengthened Grant-Making Impact: LKM's experienced professionals help you craft your goals, develop relationships with grantees and monitor the performance of each grant to be sure that the foundation's dollars are being used with maximum impact.
  • Reduced Legal Risk: LKM's clients have no exposure to worker's compensation, unemployment or wrongful discharge claims because the foundation has no employees.
  • Assured Compliance with Regulatory Bodies: LKM prepares all required Federal and State filings.
  • Increased Privacy and Security: LKM assures compliance with IRS rules for increased disclosure while maintaining clients’ privacy and security. LKM increases clients’ responsiveness to grantseekers while shielding them from inappropriate requests for support.
