Manage Your Charitable Giving Simply and Efficiently

If you support multiple organizations or you want to secure a charitable deduction now but designate beneficiaries later, a donor-advised fund (DAF) may work for you. They can be established with a number of entities, including community foundations, financial services companies and charities—including The Nature Conservancy.

Quote: Peter Metcalf

The DAF allowed us to donate the stock, avoid the capital gain and get a charitable income tax deduction for the fair market value of the stock on the date of our gift.
