What is a Donor-Advised Fund? 

A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) is a giving account established at a public charity. The 501(c)(3) public charity serves as a “sponsoring organization,” which manages and administers individual DAF accounts.  Donors can contribute to the fund as frequently as they like, and then recommend grants to their favorite charitable organizations, 1,000 Dreams Fund, whenever it makes sense for them.

You are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction following DAF contributions. Then those funds can be invested for tax-free growth, and you can recommend grants to any eligible IRS-qualified public charity – 1,000 Dreams Fund.
