Donor Advised Funds are a type of charitable giving tool that offers significant tax savings over traditional giving. Members can use these charitable giving accounts to make donations to any charity they choose.
If you currently donate to your church, alma mater or other qualified not-for-profit organizations, Donor Advised Funds can help you have a greater impact and can offer you increased convenience.
Benefits of Donor Advised Funds:
Opening an account
An account can be established easily through First Hand with an initial contribution of $1,000 (cash or marketable securities). To sign up for a Donor Advised Funds account, please fill out the form below and contact the Donor Advised Funds program manager.
Managing an account
Charitable giving accounts offer members around-the-clock Web access through DonorFirst, a secure online management tool. The DonorFirst platform allows you to manage grant recommendations, receive acknowledgements of gifts from recipient organizations, communicate with like-minded donors and view all account details.
