Maximizing Impact: Transferring your DAF to the Community Foundation

Donor advised funds (DAFs) are a powerful tool for people who care about giving back to their community and favorite charities. These funds offer donors flexibility, financial benefits, and the opportunity to meet your charitable goals. While many institutions offer DAFs, where you choose to house your DAF can greatly impact your effectiveness as a donor.

Community foundations are uniquely positioned to amplify the impact of philanthropy within a specific region.
