Why give from your Donor Advised Fund using DAFpay?

Not only is initiating your grant on this page the fastest and easiest way for you to give, but it also:

  • Makes us immediately aware that your gift was initiated and allows us to thank you via email if desired
  • Helps avoid lost checks, mailing delays, or gifts accidentally being submitted to the wrong organization or campaign
  • Saves our staff time and money tracking your gift

What are the main advantages of a Donor Advised Fund?

  • Simplicity: the donor-advised fund sponsor handles all record-keeping, disbursements, and tax receipts.
  • Flexibility: timing of your tax deduction can be separate from your charitable decision-making.
  • Tax-efficiency: contributions are tax-deductible, and any investment growth in the DAF is tax-free. It is also easy to donate long-term appreciated securities, eliminating capital gains taxes.
  • Family legacy: a DAF is a powerful way to build or continue a tradition of family philanthropy.
