Donor Advised Funds
What are Donor Advised Funds (DAFs)?
Donor advised funds are a way to give to Austin Habitat for Humanity that allows you to deposit funds at
a sponsoring non-profit organization, community foundation, or financial institution, resulting in an
immediate tax benefit. Your sponsoring institution manages your fund, while you decide the size of your
gifts and the charities and causes you benefit.
- Receive immediate tax benefits.
- Donor Advised Funds are more affordable, less time consuming, and offer more privacy than creating a private foundation.
- Donor Advised Funds allow you to contribute more to your favorite charities and non-profits due to the tax benefits and the wide range of assets that are accepted.
