Suitability Test: Private Foundation Set-Aside

To satisfy the suitability test, the foundation must show that the specific project for which the amount is set aside is one that can be better accomplished by the set-aside than by the immediate payment of funds. Such a project includes, but is not limited to, situations where relatively long-term grants or expenditures must be made to assure the continuity of particular charitable projects or program-related investments, or where grants are made as part of a matching-grant program.

An example of a specific project is a plan to build an art museum even though the exact location and architectural plans have not been finalized. For good cause shown, the period for paying the amount set aside may be extended by the Service.

To qualify under the suitability test, a set-aside must be approved by the IRS.
