Could a donor-advised fund benefit your philanthropy? More and more people are saying "Yes," making donor-advised funds one of the fastest-growing financial tools. Let's go over the benefits charitable givers receive from opening a donor-advised fund with DonorsTrust.

"Donor intent is a big problem. I think most people should view legacy giving as thorny. It certainly is for me. That is where DonorsTrust can be very helpful." — Bill Walton

Start Your Giving-Account Journey

With a donor-advised fund, you contribute to your donor-advised account, immediately generate a tax deduction, and then choose the timing of grants to charities you wish to support. 

Requesting a distribution from the account is simple. The tedious administrative work of confirming a charity’s 501(c)(3) tax status, sending the contribution, and receiving any follow-up correspondence from the charity is all handled by the donor-advised-fund sponsor. Keep track of just one tax receipt—from the donor-advised-fund sponsor—instead of many.
