According to the 2017 Donor Advised Fund report from the National Philanthropic Trust, donor-advised funds reached a record $23 billion in contributions in 2016. Donor-advised funds offer many of the benefits of a private foundation without the headaches.

Establishing an account in a DAF can be arranged at most major brokerage firms, as well as through community foundations and single-issue charity sponsors. The initial amount needed to open a DAF account and the required future minimum additions and charity gifts varies based on the specific sponsor. Other than your donation into the … [Read more...] about Are donor advised funds right for your charitable giving?
