Donor-Advised Fund FAQs

What is a Donor-Advised Fund?

A donor-advised fund (DAF) acts as a charitable giving account for you or your family that is established and administered through a community foundation, financial institution or other charitable organization. You can contribute an array of assets including cash, stock, mutual funds and more to a DAF and can realize tax benefits in the same year contributions are made.

Donors can recommend grants from their DAF to the charitable organizations of their choice at any time.

What is the benefit of a Donor-Advised Fund?

Simplified and advantageous tax benefits: By using a donor-advised fund, you’re able to make one gift to your DAF and have only one tax receipt come tax time while receiving a tax benefit in the same year the gift is made to the fund. You can then use your DAF to donate to any 501(c)(3) public charity operating anywhere in the world.

Streamlined and flexible giving: By centralizing your charitable giving, you can manage the breadth of your giving from one convenient account. A DAF provides a secure place to contribute your assets when it’s financially advantageous while granting ample flexibility in timing as you decide which organizations to support.
