Donor Advised Funds
A Donor Advised Fund, or DAF, is a giving vehicle established at a public charity, such as a foundation, that allows you to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time to your selected charities. You can contribute to and grow the fund as frequently as you like, and then you may recommend a gift whenever you determine is the appropriate time. Donor Advised Funds can be established through your financial advisor, or with a local community foundation in your area.
If you have a donor advised fund through a local community foundation or financial planning firm, please contact them directly to arrange for your DAF gift to be directed to Benjamin Rose.

Many companies sponsor matching gift programs that will match the charitable contributions made by their employees. Some even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. These programs are a great way for you to double or even triple your gift.
