Why Donor-Advised Funds
Grow your legacy and make a difference through giving.
A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) offers you a flexible and easy-to-establish vehicle for charitable giving. Unlike private foundation gifts, DAF gifts generally qualify for a full fair-market value charitable deduction and have lower startup costs. A DAF also permits you to make grants to organizations you love without the unfavorable private foundation restrictions and excise taxes.
How Donor-Advised Funds Work
MAKE A TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATION
GROW YOUR ASSETS
SUPPORT THE CAUSES YOU CARE ABOUT
Make a Tax Deductible Donation
You can donate cash, stocks, bonds, real estate, and other assets to your DAF and receive the maximum tax deduction that the IRS allows. If you have long-term appreciated assets, you do not have to pay capital gains and will receive the full fair-market value of your AGI allowed by the IRS.
Grow Your Assets
Your DAF will grow tax-free in investment pools through market performance while you decide which Christian charities to support and allocate your funds. LegacyWay’s financial experts will help you decide which investment pool to invest in based on your assets and risk tolerance.
Support the Causes You Care About
Your personalized DAF means you have the opportunity to name your fund, select account advisors, and select any successors or charitable beneficiaries. You then recommend grants from the account to qualified charities/ministries that you support. LegacyWay then conducts a grant review and due diligence process for each recommended charity, guaranteeing that your funds are being used for Kingdom advancement.
