Startup Boards — Using Donor-Advised Funds for Impact Investing

Donor-Advised Funds (DAF) are funds you set up with your brokerage firm to make tax-deductible contributions to foundations and non-profit organizations you want to support.  

You receive the tax deduction when you transfer money into your Donor-Advised Fund. 

The funds continue to grow through investments you choose until you decide to deploy those funds.

This investment opportunity lets you donate a larger amount of money to your cause. 

From there, you can contribute to any cause you like as long as it’s a qualified 501(c)(3) non-profit.

A Donor-Advised Fund structure is much lower in cost than a foundation which is expensive to set up and requires a donation of 5% of funds every year. 

Consider setting up a DAF for your impact investing.
