Donor-Advised Funds

With a donor-advised fund (DAF), you can optimize your charitable giving while earning money and receiving immediate tax benefits. 

You can set up a DAF through brokerage firms, mutual fund companies, or community foundations. The amount needed to open the fund will vary by provider but usually starts at $5,000. To learn more, consult with your financial advisor or tax expert.

Through DAF Direct, you can give directly to the LFA Texas Gulf Coast Chapter by selecting your preferred provider--Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, or BNY Mellon--and the amount you'd like to contribute.

Get Started at DAF Direct 

Once you set up a DAF, your money is invested in either mutual funds or investment pools so you continue to earn. You can write off the amount you contribute to the fund as a charitable contribution for the year when you create your fund. You can make donations to your favorite nonprofits at any time.
