What is a donor advised fund?

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a specialized financial account used for charitable giving—like a 401K for charity. Some call it a charitable giving account. It allows individuals to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then make grants to nonprofits over time.

The money in a DAF can also grow tax free and be donated at any time in the future—there are no time limits or distribution requirements for DAFs today.

Anyone can set up a DAF—either through companies that provide banking services (Fidelity, Vanguard, Schwab, etc.), newer startups dedicated to DAFs (Daffy, Charityvest, Groundswell, etc.), or often through local community foundations.
