he Rotary Foundation donor advised fund * is a convenient way to simplify your charitable giving and take advantage of tax savings at the same time. A donor advised fund account is similar to an investment account earmarked exclusively for charitable giving. It allows you to make contributions and grant recommendations to the Foundation and other preferred charities at your convenience. In many ways, it’s like having your own foundation to support your favorite causes, but without the hassles and paperwork. An account may be established by individuals or Rotary-affiliated groups.
Donor advised fund accounts offer these benefits:
- Support to The Rotary Foundation and other preferred charities
- Immediate tax benefits
- Professional asset management
- Flexibility to make grant recommendations suited to your timetable
- Easy record-keeping and tax reporting
- Bequest Society membership for individual donor advised fund account holders
- No start-up fees
As an individual or married couple, you can establish a donor advised fund account with The Rotary Foundation. (Individual accounts can have a maximum of two account holders.) Refer to the program circular (PDF) for succession options.
