Donor Resources

Pension Protection Act of 2006 (HR-4)

To comply with the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (HR-4), the Board of Directors at POISE Foundation has adopted a Uniform Procedure for Awarding Scholarships. The Pension Protection Act of 2006 (HR-4) prohibits donor-advised funds from making grants to individuals, including grants to educational institutions for the benefit of selected scholarship recipients. In addition, IRS rulings suggest serious issues regarding roles of donors/fund advisors in the selection process.
