Donor Advised Fund

What is a donor advised fund?

A donor advised fund, or DAF, is an account established at a public charity that allows donors to make charitable contributions, receive an immediate tax benefit and recommend grants from the fund over time.

Put simply, a DAF can be thought of as a charitable savings account: a donor can contribute to the fund as frequently as they like and then recommend grants to their favorite charities when they are ready.

How do I support CCES using my DAF?

Recommending a gift to CCES is simple using DAF Direct. To begin, follow these quick steps:

  1. Select your sponsoring organization (i.e. Fidelity, Schwab) from the drop-down menu.
  2. Designate where your gift goes (ex: Cavalier Fund, Endowment, Capital)
  3. Enter your gift amount!
