DonorsTrust offers one of the most popular and flexible charitable vehicles—donor-advised accounts—to help liberty-minded donors accomplish their charitable goals. Donor-advised accounts offer superior tax treatment, flexibility, and anonymity while avoiding the costs and burdens of private foundations.
Any donor-advised fund can offer those financial and administrative benefits. Only DonorsTrust truly understands you and your commitment to the principles of liberty.
DonorsTrust began 15 years ago as an alternative to traditional community foundations and private foundations, where there is a tendency for charitable capital to drift away from the original donors’ wishes and the free-market principles that make philanthropy possible.
Our founding benefactor wisely doubted the ability and commitment of his local community foundation to honor his charitable intent. After a conversation with our chairman, Kim Dennis, Bruce realized what he needed was a community foundation for liberty-minded donors.
That conversation gave birth to DonorsTrust.
Since starting with a single account in 1999, more than 200 individual donors, families, companies, and non-profit groups have chosen DonorsTrust as the solution for their charitable giving. Over the past 15 years, DonorsTrust clients have contributed more than $850 million to their donor-advised accounts. More importantly, our client donors have recommended more than $740 million in grants to advance the cause of liberty.
