A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a flexible charitable giving option administered by a third party such as a community foundation or financial services company. A donors transfers cash or other assets to the DAF and recommends how that money is granted to qualified charitable organizations such as the Alzheimer’s Association.

Benefits of donations through DAFs include

  • An immediate tax deduction upon contributing.
  • The option to grant specific amounts to the charities of your choice at a later time.
  • A centralized record-keeping system.
Generous people like you fuel the work of the Alzheimer's Association to advance care, support and research. Consider making a grant recommendation to the institution that administers your DAF to help support our mission.
