Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes. If you have a donor advised fund, DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to Ceres, directly from your DAF (as long as your DAF’s sponsoring organization is participating).

  • Establish your DAF by making an irrevocable, tax deductible donation to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program.
  • Advise the investment allocation of the donated assets (any investment growth is tax free).
  • Recommend grants to the charities you support, with the option of being recognized or remaining anonymous.
