Donor-Advised Fund Gift:

A donor-advised fund — or DAF — is a charitable account, sponsored by a public charity, which donors use to support their philanthropy. After establishing a donor-advised fund, the donor may recommend grants to qualified public charities. They may also advise the sponsoring organization (e.g. Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable or Greater Kansas City Community Foundation) on the investment strategy for the charitable assets. A sponsoring organization is 501(c)(3) public charity that sponsors a donor-advised fund program, which often consists of thousands of individual DAF accounts. Total DAF grantmaking in 2011 totaled $7.7 billion, a 13.6% increase from 2010.
