Your Donor Advised Fund in Action

So...what’s it like to have a donor advised fund at The Community Foundation?

Here's what a donor advisor has to say:

"What attracted us initially was the ease and flexibility of the account, but the access to knowledge and a caring staff is proving the most rewarding. There are a lot of options for setting up a donor advised fund, but none of the others come with this same sense of connection to our community."

How Much Can Be Granted?

The minimum grant per organization is just $250, and you can support as many nonprofits as you’d like. If you are invested in the Cash or Intermediate Fund options, you may recommend that any portion or all of your DAF balance be gifted. If your DAF fund is invested using the Perpetual Fund option, the amount available for recommending grants is determined annually and shared with you through a secure online, fund advisor portal.
