Donor Advised Funds (DAF’s)

Donors receive charitable gift receipts for the contributions to their established DAF.  The fund is normally named in someone’s memory or established as a “Family Fund”, however, the donor(s) may personalize as they wish.  The donor(s) are setup as the advisors to their Fund, which allows them to make all grant recommendations from their DAF.  Grant recommendations must be to qualifying charitable 501(c)(3) organizations, educational, government or religious entities per IRS rules.  The donor(s) may name succeeding generations as successor advisors or transition it to the Foundation to advise over upon donor(s) death.

Types of Funds

Designated Funds

Funds which support a specific charitable organization or community foundation designated in the establishing documents.

Donor Advised Funds

A charitable fund in which the donor recommends grants to charitable organizations of his / her choice. Download more information HERE.

A fund established to provide grants to specific causes (not just one specific charity) you designate such as the arts, education, health and human services, a geographic location, or the environment. Download more information HERE.

Organizational Funds

A fund specific to a named community foundation or charitable organization.

Scholarship Funds

Download more information HERE.

Unrestricted Fund

A fund in which a  broad range of interests and activities may receive grants empowering the community foundation to make strategic grants wherever the greatest need and opportunity exists.

Endowed vs Non-Endowed

Donations made to an ENDOWMENT fund are intended to be given for perpetuity. The principal funds are invested and only the earnings are available for charitable grants.

Donations made to a NON-ENDOWED fund may be granted at any time per the guidelines of the established fund.

Not to add confusion to the mix, there is also a QUASI-ENDOWED fund which in essence is still an endowment fund with some prevision that principal may be accessed at the organization’s discretion when there are extenuating circumstances.

Regardless of endowment status, all funds are still subject to donor restrictions or intents per establishing documents.
