A donor advised fund, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to World Wildlife Fund and other qualified charities. You can recommend a grant, or recurring grants, now to make an immediate impact—or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts.

A Gift for the Future
Many donor advised fund agreements allow you to select one or more beneficiaries to receive the fund’s remaining assets on your death. You can also create a family legacy of giving by naming your loved ones as your successor to continue recommending donations from your DAF to charitable organizations. Contact your fund administrator for a beneficiary form.

How It Works
Joe and Laura have several different charitable interests, including animal rights and environmental issues. They want to find an easy way to manage their giving and where they can direct it to do the most good. They establish a $25,000 donor advised fund, which they name the “Megan Fund” in honor of their granddaughter.
The couple receives a federal income tax charitable deduction for $25,000, the amount of the gift. They also get all the time they need to decide which charities to support.
After looking into the work of several nonprofits, Joe and Laura recommend donations to WWF (which they’ve supported for years) and several other organizations.
