What is a donor advised fund?

A donor advised fund is like a charitable investment account that is set up for the sole purpose of supporting charities. Individuals can contribute cash, stocks or other assets into the DAF and receive an immediate tax deduction. Those funds are invested for tax-free growth and the individual can recommend donations to charities of their choice over time.

What are the benefits of giving through a donor-advised fund?

  • Support a charity you believe in through strategic giving, over time.
  • Maintain family involvement in charitable decisions.
  • Create a lasting legacy.
  • Take advantage of immediate tax benefits with the ability to distribute funds later.
  • Consolidate all of your charitable giving.
  • Ensure that you meet and/or exceed standard deductions by combining donations of stock to a DAF.

Our work is only possible with generous support from philanthropists like you. Your gift can make an extraordinary impact and there’s no wrong way to support this community service.
