Ways To Donate
Donor Advised Funds
What is a Donor‐Advised Fund (DAF)?
How does a Donor- Advised Fund work?
Why do donors choose to have a Donor‐Advised Fund?
Simplicity – The DAF sponsor handles all record‐keeping, disbursements, and tax receipts.
Flexibility– Timing of your tax deduction can be separate from your charitable decision making.
Tax‐efficiency– Contributions are immediately tax‐deductible and any investment growth in the DAF is tax‐free. It is also easy to donate long term appreciated securities, eliminating capital gains taxes and allowing you to support multiple charities from one block of stock.
Family legacy– A DAF is a powerful way to build or continue a tradition of family philanthropy.
No start‐up costs– There is no cost to establish a donor‐advised fund. However, there are often minimum initial charitable contributions to establish the DAF (typically $5,000 or more).
No transaction fees– Once approved, 100% of your recommended grant goes to your qualified public charity of choice.
Privacy if desired– Donors may choose to remain anonymous to the grant recipient.
