How does a donor-advised fund work?

You can think of a donor-advised fund (DAF) as a charitable piggy bank. Simply transfer cash, securities or other assets into your DAF and take an immediate tax deduction. There is no time frame in which you must distribute the funds. In this way your DAF… 

  • Allows you to be more thoughtful and strategic with your philanthropy.
  • Provides anonymity and privacy if desired.
  • Offers flexibility and control over which causes receive grants.
  • Allows for an immediate tax deduction and potential for itemizing a deduction in the same tax year.
Infographic: When you give cash or property now to your donor-advised fund, you receive an income tax deduction immediately. When you are ready you can recommend a grant from your donor-advised fund to a nonprofit.
