DONOR ADVISED FUND
What is a Donor Advised Fund?
A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes.
If you have a donor advised fund, DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to Independent Diplomat directly from your DAF (as long as your DAF’s sponsoring organization is participating).
How does it work?
1- Establish your DAF by making an irrevocable, tax deductible donation to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program.
2- Advise the investment allocation of the donated assets (any investment growth is tax free).
3- Recommend grants to the charities you support, with the option of being recognized or remaining anonymous.
Did you know that approximately 50% of the Fortune 500 companies have matching gift programs? Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees.
To make a matching gift, simply request a matching gift form from your employer and send the completed and signed form with your gift. We will do the rest. The impact of your gift will then be doubled, or possibly tripled. Some companies may even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
