A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is an charitable investment account that provides a simple way to manage one's philanthropic giving. The money contributed to a DAF becomes an irrevocable transfer to a public charity responsible for administering the funds on the donor's behalf. As a grant advisor, the donor can then direct grants from the DAF to other public charities and provide additional benefits:
- On the date of contribution, the donor receives an income tax deduction equal to the shares’ fair market value.
- Once contributed, the shares can be sold without incurring capital gains tax
- DAFs are typically easier and less expensive to establish and maintain than other concentrated stock strategies.
- The donor may have the funds professionally managed by his or her financial advisor.
- Successor grant advisors can be named to the DAF to continue recommending grants after the donor passes away.
