What Is a Donor-Advised Fund?
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a separate account or fund held by a public charity 501(c)(3) organization. Each separate account is funded by individual donors and the charity has legal control over the funds. DAFs can accept cash and non-cash assets as contributions. The charity that holds the DAF provides the donor with a tax receipt for donations to the DAF. The donor retains advisory privileges regarding the qualified charities to which the DAF grants funds and how the funds are invested.
Donor-advised funds are the fastest-growing charitable giving vehicle in the U. S. because they are tax advantageous and one of the easiest, most effective ways to give to charity!
