Donor-Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving vehicle that provides an immediate tax benefit to you. It allows you to grant funds to the charitable institution of your choice. A grant through a DAF will provide financial access for a Philadelphia child to attend a safe, quality K-8 tuition-based school.

You can give through a donor-advised fund in two ways:

  • Recommend a DAF through your financial institution or foundation.
  • Contact your fund manager and recommend supporting CSFP. Your fund manager will send a check directly to CSFP in the amount you specify.
