A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program, administered by a third party public charity (such as Fidelity Charitable or Schwab Charitable), that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your favorite charities. DAFs are created for the purpose of managing charitable donations on behalf of an organization, family, or individual. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals. DAFs allow donors to give cash, stock, and other assets—with the donor receiving an immediate tax deduction at the time contribution is made, but can grant specified amounts to the charities of their choice at a later time.
