Donor-Advised Funds are a tax-advantaged, convenient way to organize your personal philanthropy or corporate giving program.

If you wish to be actively involved in deciding what causes and organizations will receive your support, prefer donor-advised funds. They allow you to support the causes you care about and teach future generations the importance of giving back. They operate much like private foundations – except there is no mandated five percent distribution, and TPF handles all administrative details from record-keeping to accounting, investment, and grant-making activities. A donor-advised fund allows you to give your cash or marketable securities at a time that is advantageous for tax purposes, allowing you to decide what you would like to support at your convenience.
