Total charitable impact


Low all-in fees, now even lower

To make the most impact with your charitable dollars, we are pleased to announce a reduction in our administrative fee structure. Beginning April 4, 2019, assets between $500,000 and $999,999 will be assessed a 0.30% administrative fee, a 0.05% reduction.

The less spent on fees and expenses, the more money available to support the causes you care most about. We believe in low cost—high impact—charitable giving and our cost structure is designed to support that belief.

As of April 4, 2019, our all-in fee structure will be as follows: 

Administrative fee schedule Standard account Select account1
