A donor advised fund is a flexible charitable giving vehicle that operates similarly to a small private family foundation, but without the administrative burden. It offers a simple way for you to streamline your giving if you are donating thousands of dollars a year or more. It allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax benefit and then recommend grants from the fund over time. An easy way to think about a donor-advised fund is like a charitable savings account: a donor contributes to the fund as frequently as she or he likes and then recommends grants to a favorite charity when ready. It also provides a unique opportunity to donate anonymously if you prefer to do so. CATW is always happy to keep your name and other personal information completely confidential at all times, but a donor advised fund could prevent even our staff from knowing your identity if you so choose. (This would be a shame, because we want to contact you to thank you!)
Frequently used Donor Advised Fund Managers are Fidelity Charitable, Northern Trust, and Schwab Charitable. Find out more about Donor Advised Funds.
If you already have a donor advised fund and are looking for more information about CATW, or would like to put your Fund Administrator in contact with CATW, please reach out. Our development staff will be happy to help you!
Many companies, especially larger corporations and startups, actively promote philanthropy. Talk to your Human Resources/Finance team to learn about charitable giving programs currently in place at your workplace and how you can participate.
