Donor-Advised Fund and Qualified Charitable Contributions
Ask your Financial Adviser about A DONOR-ADVISED FUND, or DAF, which is a giving vehicle established at a public charity. It allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time. Donors can contribute to the fund as frequently as they like, and then recommend grants to their favorite charities whenever makes sense for them. The first donor-advised funds were created in the 1930s. In the 1990s, donor-advised funds began to grow in visibility and popularity, and today they are philanthropy’s fastest-growing vehicles. Grants from donor-advised funds account for more than 3 percent of all giving in the United States.
If you are 70 and 1/2 years old and need to make the required minimum distribution from your IRAs, ask your financial Adviser about qualified charitable contributions (QCD) which may allow you to realize savings on income taxes while donating to your favorite charity. Under the QCD you make a charitable contribution directly from your IRA.
