A giving program that manages charitable contributions on behalf of donors, a donor-advised fund (DAF) offers flexibility in directing donations to your favorite charities. Donors participate by transferring cash or other assets to their DAFs, which are administered by a third party such as a community foundation or financial services company, and by recommending how that money is granted.

Benefits of donations through DAFs include

  • An immediate tax deduction upon contributing to your DAF.
  • The option to grant specified donation amounts to the charities of your choice at a later time than contributing to your DAF.
  • A centralized record-keeping system.
Generous people like you fuel the work of the Alzheimer's Association to advance care, support and research. If you’ve created a DAF, consider making a grant recommendation to your donor-advised charity to help support our mission.
