My father recently passed away and I am adamant on doing some charity work in honor of his name. I have always donated to his church as well as other medical research organizations with no "foundation" set up. I am interested in honoring his name in a "foundation." He passed away from liver cancer. What do you think I should do?

My recommendation is basically the same as the answer to the question above. You could work to raise funds for a foundation dealing specifically with liver cancer, or a foundation dealing with cancer that would be willing to accept funds specifically for liver cancer work. Or you could create a donor advised fund at a community foundation to raise money that you could recommend be used for programs in this area. Unless you expect to make this your life's work, I wouldn't recommend setting up your own separate "foundation." —Don Kramer
