What is a Donor Advised Fund (DAF)?

DAFs are funds in which you retain the right to make grant recommendations to charities of your choice.

With a minimum gift of $5,000 to the Jewish Community Foundation, you are entitled to an immediate income tax deduction in the year in which you create the fund and for later contributions to the fund.

You are entitled to appoint successor advisors to make recommendations for distributions from the fund.

Already Have a DAF?

Our donor advised funds’ fees are on average 40% lower than those with other foundations and big investment firms. Moving your charitable dollars to the Jewish Federation can save you money.

Call Patti to learn about moving your DAF to the Foundation.
