Donor Advised Funds
A Donor Advised Fund, or DAF, is a philanthropic vehicle through which donors may contribute to their favorite charities. Established with organizations such as Fidelity Charitable® or Schwab Charitable, contributions to a DAF are immediately tax-deductible, and are invested and grow tax-free. After establishing a DAF, you may recommend grants to the charities of your choice at any point.
Here is a link to DAF Direct, which makes it easier to give directly from your donor-advised fund.
