Contact Kyle Cutter-Dabiri



A donor-advised fund (DAF) is an investment account for philanthropic giving that offers an immediate tax benefit and the flexibility to support your preferred charities right away or over time.


The Advantages of Giving Through Your DAF

  • Simplicity: Your sponsoring organization handles all record-keeping, disbursements (including an option for automatic distributions), and tax receipts, and provides you with a single document at tax time. Plus, it's an easy gift to make because it does not affect your current cash flow.
  • Timing: You can request that a donation be made at any time or make automatic recurring gifts on a schedule of your choice.
  • Flexible funding options: Fund your DAF with the assets of your choice, including cash, stock, securities, real estate, and even crypto.
