Legal FAQs

The Council's Legal team has created a collection of Frequently Asked Questions pages to help members navigate some of the most common legal questions that foundations encounter.

Most of these resources are available only to Council members except for the Scholarships FAQ page, which is available here for anyone regardless of membership status.

Members can reach out at any time for 1-1 support for issues related to governance, fund management, grantmaking, lobbying and political activity, self-dealing and more.
