Give to Ruth Bancroft Garden with your Donor Advised Fund in 3 clicks here

  • A donor advised fund (DAF) is a specialized financial account used for charitable giving – like a 401K for charity. It allows individuals to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then make grants to nonprofits over time.
  • The money in a DAF can also grow tax free and be donated at any time in the future – there are no time limits or distribution requirements for DAFs today.
  • Anyone can set up a DAF – either through companies that provide banking services (Fidelity, Vanguard, Schwab, etc.), newer startups dedicated to DAFs (Daffy, Charityvest, Groundswell, etc.) or often through local community foundations.
