LLC's would be used as sub entities to hold various assets for liability protection or for asset protection.
But we are considering forming a trust or foundation for the overall "educational" corporation. Something to hold an endowment.
Education can cover aa multitude of compartments while providing some exemptions from typical business regulations.
The lawyers have different strategies.
There is an endowment that would support all expenses, salaries, and taxes for twenty years.
So regardless of the property's ability to produce income there will be twenty years where all stewards will have income, housing, transportation, retirement fund, medical insurance and medical services by a staff doctor -- all provided by the endowment as long as they fulfill their 'employment' obligations. That's a lot to lose if someone wants to "be an issue".
