Open a New Fund

Donor-Advised Funds, also know as Charitable Giving Accounts, are a convenient way to support multiple charities with one fund. You receive immediate tax advantages with the flexibility to give over time. Donor-Advised Funds are often used to replace private foundations as a more flexible, efficient and less expensive way of giving.

A new Donor-Advised Fund requires three steps:

Step 1: Establish the Account

Create your account by completing the Fund Agreement Form. Choose a name, record contact information, define beneficiaries and more. Review information on fees and guidelines.
