KELT Innovative Ways To Give

Donor Advised Fund Gifts

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable investment account for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations you care about. When you continue cash, securities or other assets to donor-advised fund an immediate tax deduction may be available to you. 

DAF donors make irrevocable contributions of cash, securities or other assets to the public charity sponsoring the DAF in the donor(s)' name. DAF assets are typically invested for growth to provide philanthropic support over time. Donors recommend grants from their DAF's to qualified 501 (c) (3) public charities, like KELT. 

Donor Advised Funds have seen significant growth in the last few years. A 2017 article from NonProfitPRO stated, 

"We suspect the growth is due to the fact that people want to be more philanthropic and have a strong interest in giving back to their communities."
