Donor Advised Funds
Donor advised funds offer a flexible, convenient and cost-effective way to organize your giving.
You can make a tax-deductible gift to a donor advised fund now, and then recommend grants to specific nonprofits on your own timetable — and the Community Foundation handles the paperwork.
Charitable assets are invested, enabling you to grant more over time to nonprofit organizations, and you may replenish your fund with additional gifts according to your personal giving schedule and tax situation.
- Donors who wish to remain active in their giving, without the paperwork.
- Donors who want the flexibility of recommending the organizations they wish to support or partnering with the Community Foundation and other donors to support high-impact initiatives.
- Individuals who wish to involve future generations of their family.
- Private foundations seeking to fulfill their minimum 5% payout or those seeking a simple alternative.
