Make a gift through a donor-advised fund

A DAF is a centralized vehicle for charitable giving that makes it easy for donors to dedicate funds to support a nonprofit organization. It also provides an operationally convenient and tax-efficient method for donors to manage their charitable giving.

Give today through a donor-advised fund

With a DAF, charitably inclined individuals, families, and businesses make an irrevocable gift to a public charity that sponsors a donor-advised fund program, and may take an immediate tax deduction. Donors can then recommend grants over time to IRS-qualified 501(c)(3) public charities. DAFs also allow donors to approach their charitable giving thoughtfully by involving other family members or colleagues in their philanthropic decisions. Most DAFs accept donations of long-term appreciated securities and other assets, and donors can advise how the funds are invested, which could potentially allow tax-free growth, and could result in more money for AKF.
