Preserving Family Legacy and Memory
After the tragic death of Mike and PA Kushner’s vivacious 19-year-old son Logan, the family was determined to keep their beloved son’s memory alive by continuing his commitment to bold acts of kindness. The Kushner’s consulted with an attorney to explore their charitable options and learned creating a private family foundation would not only be costly but require up to a year to secure their tax exempt status.
“It was important to me to get started right away,” said PA Kushner. “Our attorney suggested we look into the Pinellas Community Foundation (PCF), which turned out to be the perfect fit. They quickly gave us the legal umbrella we needed to become a viable 501 (c)(3) and expertly manage all administrative aspects of our tax and financial obligations. PCF has freed us to focus on what’s most important, honoring Logan’s incredible legacy.”
