Establish a Donor Advised Fund

What is a Donor Advised Fund?

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a convenient and flexible way for a donor to make gifts with the intent for distributing the gifts to qualified charitable organizations in the future.

How can I start a DAF?

The only requirement for a DAF is an initial gift of at least $5,000 and the completion of the DAF form. Gifts of cash, stock, real estate or any other appreciated assets may be used to establish a DAF. Once established, gifts of any size may be made to the DAF at any time in order to maximize the tax benefits of the donor.

How do I use a DAF?

Gifts are made only at the donor's discretion to the qualified recipient of the donor's choice. 

How are gifts made through a DAF recognized by the receiving charity?

The donor(s) may remain anonymous or they may wish to publicize the gift. It is completely up to the donor's discretion. The Foundation will work with the donor to ensure his or her wishes are met.
