HOW IT WORKS

A SIMPLER WAY TO DONATE AND REALIZE TAX BENEFITS

A donor-advised fund account helps you give to charities while potentially realizing the greatest tax benefits of charitable giving. Let us handle the details so you can focus on philanthropy. You receive an immediate tax deduction and can recommend grants to your favorite charities at any time.  Any growth in your investments is tax-free, and you can take your time choosing the charities you want to support.

The Account is a vehicle for contributing assets to charity that can maximize current tax benefits and provide flexibility for future contributions. An initial minimum, irrevocable and unconditional contribution of $5,000, allows an Account Holder to establish an Account and make charitable contributions that are invested for  tax-free potential growth.

Account Holders may then recommend grants of $50 or more (or the balance of the Account, if less) to qualified1 U.S. tax-exempt charities, or to U.S. state or local governmental organizations qualified to receive charitable contributions, such as state colleges or universities. Grants to certain non-U.S. charities may also be permitted, subject to additional due diligence and expense.
