Donor Advised Fund

Friends of Yemin Orde accepts gifts from donor-advised funds ( DAF). A DAF  is a charitable giving vehicle sponsored by a public charity that allows you to make a contribution to that charity and be eligible for an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants over time to any IRS-qualified public charity.  As such, when you donate to your DAF, you’re making a tax-deductible donation to the organization sponsoring the fund. But, because your account is a DAF, you advise the organization on how to grant the money out to your favorite charities.  Click here to request gifts from Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable and BNY Mellon funds.
