Why Give From Your Donor Advised Fund Directly On This Page?

Not only is initiating your grant on this page the fastest and easiest way for you to give, but it also:

  • Saves our staff time and money tracking your gift
  • Makes us immediately aware that your gift was initiated and allows us to thank you via email if desired
  • Helps avoid lost checks, mailing delays, or gifts accidentally being submitted to the wrong organization or campaign

What are the main advantages of a donor-advised fund?

  • Simplicity: the donor-advised fund sponsor handles all record-keeping, disbursements, and tax receipts.
  • Flexibility: timing of your tax deduction can be separate from your charitable decision-making.
  • Tax-efficiency: contributions are tax-deductible, and any investment growth in the DAF is tax-free. It is also easy to donate long-term appreciated securities, eliminating capital gains taxes.
  • Family legacy: a DAF is a powerful way to build or continue a tradition of family philanthropy.
