Donor Advised Funds

Take an active role in your philanthropy with these flexible funds. Donor Advised Funds are the number one option for donors who value freedom, choice, and a hands-on approach to giving, and are ideal for those wanting to give to multiple organizations and programs.


A Donor Advised Fund is a personalized fund that makes it easy for you to support the issues and organizations you care about in central Ohio or across the country. You can use cash, stock, or other assets to create a named fund, qualify for an immediate income tax deduction, and when it’s convenient for you, choose the charities you want to support. 


Consider a Donor Advised Fund if you:

  • Demand simplicity and ease.
  • Want to manage all of your giving from one convenient account.
  • Want to be actively engaged in your philanthropy.
  • Wish to give to multiple organizations and programs throughout the year.
  • Are interested in learning more about the central Ohio community and its challenges.
  • Want to involve your children or family in your charitable giving.
  • Are seeking more information about giving opportunities, insights, and perspectives locally, nationally, and worldwide.
