Donor Advised Funds offer flexibility and impact

Donor Advised Funds

With a donor advised fund, you’re able to recommend which nonprofits and organizations you want to grant to, and Bay Area Community Foundation (BACF) does all the work of administering the grants. With diligent financial management by BACF, the fund will continue to gain interest each year to continue on forever. Benefits of establishing a donor advised fund with BACF:

  • Enjoy cost-savings and tax advantages by giving through your fund as an alternative to direct giving or creating a private foundation.
  • Have the flexibility to add to your fund at any time for immediate tax deduction, but choose to distribute the funds over longer periods of time.
  • Make giving a family activity and include children as advisors to the fund after your death.
  • Give anonymously, if desired.
  • Gain access to the Foundation’s professional staff for expert financial management.
  • Honor a family member with a named fund.
