Donor–Advised Funds (DAF)

Give from your donor-advised fund

DAFs are a type of giving program that allows you to combine favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your charitable giving. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals. These are similar to a “charitable savings account” because you can add funds to it whenever you like. Some donors choose to open a DAF rather than creating a private foundation.

Your DAF gift to Episcopal Relief & Development helps support our work in building resilience, fostering economic growth, and promoting health and well-being for children, families, and whole communities throughout the world.

  • Establish your DAF by making an irrevocable, tax-deductible
    donation through a sponsoring charitable organization
  • Advise the investment allocation of how much and how
    often you want to distribute funds (any investment growth
    is tax-free)
  • Contact your financial advisor for detailed information
