What Is a Donor-Advised Fund?
Top Benefits of Donor-Advised Funds
Donor-advised funds are the fastest growing charitable vehicle in the United States. This is primarily because donors have access to a number of unique benefits that aren’t available when donating directly to a charity or to a private foundation.
CONTRIBUTE ILLIQUID AND APPRECIATED ASSETS
Unlike most charities, Haven can accept a wide variety of appreciated assets at full-market value. This includes cryptocurrency, publicly traded securities, private company stock, real estate, art, and other tangible personal property.
MAXIMIZE TAX DEDUCTIONS
Donors receive an immediate tax deduction when contributing to the donor-advised fund. By donating appreciated assets directly, donors can avoid capital gains taxes which increases the value of their contribution.
STREAMLINED PHILANTHROPIC GIVING
With a donor-advised fund, the responsibility of administrative work is transferred to Haven. No matter how many charities a donor supports with Haven throughout the year, they will only have one tax receipt to keep track of.
GROW CONTRIBUTIONS TAX-FREE
Donations can be invested until they are granted to a charity. All of the returns earned by the investments are tax free and can be reinvested as long as the donor chooses.
