Fiscal Sponsorship (FS)
It is a formal arrangement between PPF and you whereby PPF sponsors your charitable project or mission that may lack 501(c)(3) status. This allows you, on behalf of your charitable mission, to seek grants, hold fundraisers, and solicit tax-deductible donations under PPF's exempt status for the benefit of your charitable mission. This vehicle is typically best suited for clients that wish to use other sources of revenue, including but not limited to self-funding, to carry out the charitable mission.

Donor Advised Fund (DAF)
It is a simple, cost-effective philanthropic solution owned and operated by PPF and advised by you - delivering all the benefits of charitable giving. A DAF can have the look and feel of a private family foundation or stand-alone 501(c)(3) without the administrative burden, cost, and fiscal responsibility. This vehicle is typically best suited for clients that wish to self-fund the charitable account.
Private Operating Foundation (POF)
The PPF Benevolent Fund, Inc., our own POF, directs charitable giving in the form of modest hardship grants to poor, distressed, underprivileged and/or needy current or former players, coaches, staff of professional, collegiate, high school or other sports associations with the goal of helping grant recipients return to or become productive members of society.
Our POF's mission also allows for grants to support organizations with scientific, medical, literary, and/or educational purposes. This vehicle is typically best suited for clients such as leagues, associations, institutions or teams seeking to create a medical hardship fund to benefit individuals from their community or an individual seeking to fund a educational scholarship at a particular educational institution.
