Funds That Encourage Continued Donor Engagement

A donor-advised fund is a little like a personal charitable savings account. A donor creates an account and makes a contribution of cash, stock, or other assets like real estate or artwork and can take an immediate tax deduction for the gift.

The accounts are controlled by the Foundation, in that it invests the assets and manages the donor’s account. Once a fund is established, donors tell the sponsoring organization which nonprofits they’d like to donate to from their accounts.
