Donor Advised Funds

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a popular, flexible and easy way to support the organizations, causes and issues you care about, now and in the future.

You can make contributions to your fund at any time and take a tax deduction for the year in which gifts are made. You can then recommend grants from your fund at any time to nonprofits you choose. A donor advised fund may be created by an individual, family, group, business or nonprofit organization.

How it Works:

  1. You make an irrevocable contribution of assets.
  2. You receive the maximum tax deduction that the IRS allows.
  3. You name your DAF account, advisors and any successors or charitable beneficiaries.
  4. Your contribution is placed into a DAF account where it can be invested and grow tax free.
  5. At any time afterward, you can recommend grants from your account to qualified charities.
