Donor Advised Fund (DAF)

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a great way to distribute gifts to charities of your choosing, while providing an immediate tax benefit.  

How does it work? 

  1. Make an initial gift of cash or stock to your donor advised fund.
  2. The gift in your donor advised fund grows tax-free.
  3. You make recommendations on where to give from your donor advised fund.
  4. Please contact Director of External Resources Kathleen Molnar at if you have any questions or need more information!
