How donor-advised funds work

Donor-advised funds allow you to direct gifts to a charitable organization through a charitable investment account you’ve established with a public charity.  Many DAFs are with community foundations, but some of the largest DAFs are managed by investment houses like Fidelity, Vanguard and Schwab.  You contribute to the DAF and then make recommendations for how the funds should be distributed to the charities of your choice.  

Your contributions to the DAF are treated as a charitable contribution by the Internal Revenue Service at the time the contribution is made. You can then choose when and to what organizations you want to make distributions when it works for you. 

For a full set of guidelines surrounding the disbursement of funds from a DAF, please consult a DAF financial advisor.
