Donor Advised Fund

Your Donor Advised Fund is a great way to help others.

You can make gifts today by distributing a grant to fund programs that you care about.

Flowchart: Donor transfers stock or cash to a donor advised fund and the donor advised fund makes charitable distributions.

According to current data, Donor Advised Funds are holding more than $159 Billion in assets that aren't helping others.

This is money that can be used NOW to send a child to camp, assist a senior with food, help a veteran with housing, create an endowment and much, much more.

Please consider FREEING your funds today by making a grant from your Donor Advised Fund.

You will be impacting lives and helping those less fortunate in your community.

Gifts from your donor advised fund

Your donor advised fund has several advantages. You can make one larger gift to a DAF and then recommend grants to us and other nonprofits. You can use the "Make a Gift From My DAF" tool to contact your DAF provider and make a grant. We will acknowledge your generous gift as a DAF distribution.
