A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a charitable giving account created by an individual, family or organization. It offers an immediate tax benefit and allows you to make grants over time to your favorite nonprofit organizations. A Donor Advised Fund is an attractive and economical alternative to a private foundation.
When you open a Donor Advised Fund at the GCCTF, you will be provided with a dedicated advisor who will discuss your giving goals, help you identify and evaluate nonprofit organizations and programs, connect you with other fund holders who share your philanthropic interests, create a plan that involves your family in your grant making, and consider the future of your donor advised fund. We can also help you define a focus for your giving, create a mission statement or build a grants management program.
