What is a Donor Advised Fund (DAF)?
An irrevocable, tax-deductible gift of money, stock or property
Donated to and managed by a public charity like ImpactAssets
The donation is invested so it can continue to grow tax-free
Whenever desired, the donor can recommend grants to organizations of his or her choosing
The Giving Fund is a unique donor advised fund (DAF) that provides an easy, low-cost way to maximize your charitable impact by giving grants to the causes you care about and simultaneously investing assets in options that generate a financial and social or environmental return.
With investment options in areas such as sustainable agriculture, microcredit, affordable housing, alternative energy and healthcare in the developing world, the Giving Fund makes it possible to channel capital directly toward better outcomes for people and the environment all over the world.
You can open a Giving Fund account with a tax-deductible contribution starting as low as $5,000.
ImpactAssets also offers Type 1 supporting organizations, an IRS-designated philanthropic vehicle that gives donors more control and flexibility than a Donor Advised Fund, but may yield a greater tax deduction on contributions than those made to a private foundation.
