What Is a Donor Advised Fund?

A Donor Advised Fund, or DAF, is a charitable investment account. It allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, invest for tax-free growth, and then recommend grants from the fund over time. Donors can contribute to the fund as frequently as they like, and then recommend grants to their favorite charities whenever makes sense for them.
