A donor-advised fund (DAF) gives you the option to easily and conveniently recommend grants to public charities. By utilizing a donor-advised fund, you can reduce the after-tax cost of giving to charity and streamline the giving process. In addition, assets in a donor-advised fund grow free of taxation, building your giving capacity. With most DAF providers, you simply log on to your account, name the non-profit of your choice, and select a dollar amount for your grant. All of the check writing and administration is handled on your behalf.
