Founder of Laura Solomon, Esq. & Associates
Laura Solomon often works with individuals and nonprofit clients to assist them in establishing Donor Advised and other funds at The Philadelphia Foundation. Among the funds she has established are those supporting All Riders Up, Canine Partners for Life and the Joseph Jocilino Gaskill Education Fund, which supports students with schizophrenia.
She also was instrumental in transitioning a family foundation, The Wright Hayre Foundation, to a Donor Advised Fund at the Philadelphia Foundation. As is common with many small foundations, the administrative duties associated with managing a private foundation had become cumbersome for the family. Establishing a Donor Advised Fund allowed the family to continue making grants supporting education in honor of Ruth Wright Hayre, former president of the Philadelphia School Board.
What she says about the Philadelphia Foundation:
“The Philadelphia Foundation is an incredible resource for the greater Philadelphia nonprofit community. I frequently turn to the Foundation’s staff and rely on their services. The Foundation has valuable resources for charitable individuals to help fulfill philanthropic goals. My nonprofit organization clients also find efficient and effective options at the Foundation to further their charitable missions.”
