Donor Advised Fund (DAF)

What is a DAF?

A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) is a centralized charitable account. It allows charitably-inclined individuals, families, and businesses to make tax-deductible charitable donations of cash, publicly-traded stock and in some case, certain liquid assets, to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program.

Donor Advised Funds are the fastest-growing giving method and tax-efficient way to manage charitable donations. Donor Advised Funds allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time.

Project Paws Alive is proud to be a resource and partner to several of the United States’ largest Donor Advised Fund sponsor organizations and their philanthropic services teams. We are well-versed in the mechanics of Donor Advised Fund giving and the applicable IRS regulations.

Please consider recommending Project Paws Alive as an organization to support through your donor advised fund. We are a 501(c)(3) public charity that is powered by the support of donors, like you.
