Donor Advised Funds
What is a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)?
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving vehicle that allows you to make a charitable contribution and then recommend grants over time from the fund to support your preferred causes, like Operation Homefront. Donor-advised funds can easily be set up through a community foundation or financial institutions such as Fidelity, Vanguard and others. We are experienced with working with all types of DAF hosts.
If you already have a donor-advised fund, you can contact your DAF representative and recommend a gift today.
How does it work?
- Establish your DAF by making an irrevocable, tax deductible donation to a public charity that supports your DAF program. Any investment growth is tax-free.
- Work with your fund manager to recommend grants to the charities you support, with the option of being recognized or remaining anonymous.
- Continue to recommend grants over time for as long as there are funds in your account. You can add funds to your account whenever you like.
