Administrative Fees

Administrative fees support the administrative requirements of your fund and the philanthropic activities that enable your charitable gifts to meet the highest possible standards.

We keep our fees low and manage our costs, including check processing, bookkeeping, investment management, tax reporting, auditing and evaluation. Fees also help support the ongoing philanthropic activities of the Arizona Community Foundation consistent with its role as a leader in the community, and ensure that you receive the highest-quality guidance and most timely information regarding your philanthropic investments. 

The Arizona Community Foundation offers a tiered fee schedule illustrated in the table below. Additional information is provided in the Administrative Fees document.
