Donor-Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is like a charitable investment account for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations you care about.

When you contribute cash, securities, or other assets to a donor-advised fund at a public charity, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction. Then those funds can be invested for tax-free growth, and you can recommend grants to virtually any IRS-qualified public charity.

Donor-advised funds are the fastest-growing charitable giving vehicle in the United States because they are one of the easiest and most tax-advantageous ways to give to charity. Moreover, they are a great way to support Gleaners Community Food Bank.

Donations from all donor-advised funds are welcomed and encouraged!

But if you already have a charitable investment account with Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, or BNY Mellon, giving is even easier using DAF Direct. Just follow the DAF Direct link provided on this page to make your gift to Gleaners right now!
