About Family Foundation Management / Counsel
FFM/C serves family foundations either as managers or as consultants. We work for a time-based flat fee negotiated in advance. As managers we accept a defined responsibility for the operation of your foundation. As counsel we work with you to achieve your foundation's philanthropic goals and objectives.
