Donor Advised Funds

A donor advised-fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to obtain the most favorable tax benefits with the ability to support your favorite charities. If you have a donor advised fund or DAF, contact your advisor to make a gift that will help continue the mission of our Sisters.

Benefits of a DAF Program

  • It allows individuals with philanthropic intent to have their charitable assets professionally managed and distributed to desired causes at a fraction of the cost of a private foundation.
  • Lower cost is only one of many benefits.

How it works

  • When you contribute cash, securities or other assets to a donor-advised fund, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction.
  • Those funds can be invested for tax-free growth.
  • Over time, you can recommend grants from the fund to virtually any IRS-qualified public charity.
  • Because you get immediate tax benefit for your contributions, they are irrevocable.

Steps to take

  1. If you have a donor-advised fund, contact your financial institution to request a DAF grant to the Dominican Sisters of Sparkill.
  2. Please have your financial institution include your name and address.
  3. Please notify us so that we can properly thank you.
