Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a philanthropic vehicle that allows you to make charitable contributions, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants to qualified nonprofit organizations, such as the Anne Springs Close Greenway. By establishing a donor advised fund, you can centralize your charitable giving, simplify administrative tasks, and take advantage of the tax benefits associated with charitable donations.

A DAF empowers you as a philanthropist to align financial giving with your values, engage family members in charitable discussions and leave a lasting legacy of positive change.

Benefits of This Gift

  • Tax Benefits: Receive an immediate tax deduction when contributing to the DAF, and potentially eliminate capital gains tax when donating appreciated assets.
  • Simplified Giving: Centralize and streamline charitable giving through a single fund, reducing paperwork and administrative burden.
  • Flexibility: Choose when and how much to contribute, and take time to research and strategize charitable donations. Avoid the end-of-year rush to decide and distribute.
  • Long-Term Impact: Create a legacy of charitable giving by involving future generations in the fund's grant-making process, and grow the fund tax-free, allowing for more impactful contributions over time.
  • Family Involvement: Involve family members in philanthropic decisions, fostering a culture of giving and shared values.
  • Privacy: If desired, maintain anonymity. Grants from the DAF are often made in the fund's name rather than the donor's.
  • Matching Gifts: Leverage employer matching gift programs to amplify the impact of contributions to the donor-advised fund.
