Donor Advised Funds Simplify Giving, Make a Lasting Impact on Causes that Count

10-01-2018News & Articles

The Catholic Community Foundation provides an opportunity for community members to simplify their charitable giving while making a lasting, positive impression in the community through donor advised funds.

It allows the donor to make a gift, in stocks or cash, that will fund the Donor Advised Fund. The fund’s assets grow tax free and the donor is able to provide recommendations on grants to be made from the fund through their online portal — all without any fees.

For Jerry and Kathleen Morgan, establishing their Donor Advised Fund six years ago has provided a way to give consistently to the charities of their choice regardless of variations in their income.
