Donor Advised Funds:  Easy Tax Advantaged Charitable Giving

- Easy diversification of your giving
- Anonymity if desired

- Gifts irrevocable
- Shouldn’t use appreciated stock held less than 12 months or stock held for a loss
- Administrative/Asset management fees
- Charities kept waiting/no payout requirement

- Opportunity for field research on your charities
- Joining a network of like-minded philanthropists
- Influence how other monies in the fund are used
- May more readily accept nonstandard assets

Private Foundations: For Big-League Philanthropists Willing to Devote Large Amounts of Money and Time


- Prestige
