Investing in our Future Generations
Donor Advised Giving
A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is a philanthropic vehicle established at a public charity. It allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax benefit, and then recommend grants from the fund over time.
An easy way to think about a donor-advised fund is like a charitable checking or savings account: a donor contributes to the fund as frequently as they like and then recommends grants to their favorite charity when they are ready.
How does a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) work?
You make an irrevocable contribution of personal assets.
You immediately receive the maximum tax deduction that the IRS allows.
You name your donor-advised fund account, advisors, and any successors or charitable beneficiaries.
Your contribution is placed into a donor-advised fund account where it can be invested and grow tax free.
At any time afterward, you can recommend grants from your account to qualified charities based on your donor intent and philanthropic objectives.
