DAF Donation FAQs

What is a Donor-Advised Fund?

A Donor-Advised Fund of DAF is like a savings account whose sole purpose is charitable giving. An individual, family, or group contributes to their DAF which is managed by an organization, like a foundation or a financial institution. A donor gets an immediate tax break when they contribute funds to their DAF, and then they can later suggest what nonprofit or charitable organization they want their funds to be granted to, like HopeWest.

Why are Donor Advised Funds great for nonprofits?

There is a greater potential for nonprofits to receive a larger or more intentional gift. They are a great way for nonprofits to maximize their fundraising from donors who are looking for a more simplified way of giving.

How do I donate a Donor Advised Fund?

We have partnered with The Giving Block and Chariot to provide donors with an easy way to donate DAFs.

As a donor, enter your personal information, select your DAF provider, and sign in with your credentials. Once signed in, you can easily specify your desired gift amount.
