Donor-Advised Funds

Are you looking for a way to benefit Food Bank of Iowa both now and in the future? Would you like to simplify your annual and lifetime charitable giving?

A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) might be the perfect solution for you. You can use a DAF to distribute gifts easily to Food Bank of Iowa and other non-profit charities. With a DAF, you can make gifts to charity during your lifetime, and when you pass away, your children can carry on your legacy of giving.

Benefits of a donor-advised fund

  • Establish a flexible vehicle for annual charitable giving
  • Benefit from a more tax and cost efficient alternative to a private foundation
  • Receive an estate tax deduction and savings from your gift
  • Obtain a charitable income tax deduction in the year of your gift

How a donor-advised fund works

  1. You make an initial, irrevocable gift of cash or stock to fund a DAF at Food Bank of Iowa.
  2. The assets in your DAF grow tax-free.
  3. You make annual recommendations on gifts to be made from your DAF.
  4. When you pass away, your children may recommend charitable gifts from your DAF.

More on donor-advised funds

A donor-advised fund has several advantages when compared to a private foundation. These include:

  • Minimal start-up time and cost.
  • Gifts are generally deductible at fair market value.
  • Not subject to distribution requirements and certain excise taxes.
