HOW TO GIVE
Donor Advised Funds
You may use a Donor Advised Fund to distribute charitable gifts, while the assets in your fund grow tax-free.
This choice allows you to make gifts to charities during your lifetime, and when you pass away, your children can carry on your legacy of giving.
You Enjoy Several Benefits with your Donor Advised Fund
Establish a flexible vehicle for annual charitable giving.
Benefit from a more tax and cost efficient alternative to a private foundation.
Obtain a charitable income tax deduction in the year of your gift.
How a Donor Advised Fund Works
You make an initial, irrevocable gift of cash or stock to fund a DAF at a sponsoring organization.
The assets in your DAF grow tax-free.
You make annual recommendations on gifts to be made from your DAF.
Gifts From your Donor Advised Fund
Your donor advised fund has several advantages. You can make one larger gift to a DAF and then recommend grants to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kootenai County and other nonprofits. You may choose to contact your DAF provider and make a grant. We will acknowledge your generous gift as a DAF distribution.
