Donor Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving account designed exclusively to invest, grow, and give assets to charities for meaningful and lasting impact.

Here’s how it works:
You donate assets into a DAF and recommend how those assets should be invested. Your contribution is tax-deductible and the assets in the DAF grow tax-free. When you’re ready, recommend a grant to a charity you care about, then distribute the gifted funds. It is a convenient tax-efficient way to make donations.

It provides…

  • substantial income tax charitable deduction
  • estate tax savings
  • no capital gain tax on transfer of assets
  • flexibility of gift determinations
  • knowing that your assets are making a difference for the chapter.

Minimum investment amounts vary by the providers of the DAFs. Donations can be made in cash, real estate, or securities.
