YouthBridge offers donors many options for charitable giving, any of which will benefit your choice of charities, and provide tax advantages for you. We’ll be happy to help you determine the type of fund that best meet your goals.
Donor Advised Fund
Donor Advised Funds or Charitable Giving Accounts are a convenient way to support multiple charities with one fund. You receive immediate tax benefits 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.
Designated funds are invested and grants are made to specific charities of your choice . It’s an excellent way to ensure that your charities receive funding on a regular basis.
With an endowed designated fund, you can be confident that your gift will provide a lasting legacy to sustain your favorite nonprofit. Should that organization cease to exist, YouthBridge has variance power to ensure that the funds will be redirected to an organization meeting your charitable intent so that your generosity will continue to make an impact.
Field of Interest Fund
