A donor advised fund is a flexible way to manage your charitable giving and a cost-effective alternative to establishing a private foundation.
While The Julian Center does not directly manage Donor Advised Funds, there are a number of financial institutions and community trusts that can assist you in establishing your fund.
Contributions and/or grants from your Donor Advised Fund can be made to The Julian Center and other charitable organizations of your choice while you receive these benefits:
An immediate tax deduction
The flexibility of one source for charitable giving, without the costs and administrative obligations of a private foundation
No start-up costs or administrative expenses
Fund provides more ongoing tax benefits than with a private foundation
