Donor Advised Funds

Donor Advised Funds (DAF) allow the donor to recommend eligible charitable recipients for grants from the fund. (The Foundation’s board has final approval of the recommendations.)

Donor Advised Funds are one of the most flexible funds the Foundation offers because a DAF allows a donor to consolidate all tax deductible assets and charitable giving into one vehicle that is invested by the Foundation for growth. DAFs can be established by individuals, families, companies or the rollover from a private foundation.
