Advise the investment allocation of the donated assets (any investment growth is tax-free)
Recommend grants be given to Seneca Hills Bible Conference.

Why a donor-advised fund?

  • Simplicity: The DAF sponsor handles all record-keeping, disbursements; tax receipts.
  • Flexibility: Timing of your tax deduction can be separate from your charitable decision making.
  • Tax-efficiency: Contributions are tax-deductible and any investment growth in the DAF is tax-free. It is also easy to donate long term appreciated securities, eliminating capital gains taxes and allowing you to support multiple charities from one block of stock.
  • Family legacy: A DAF is a powerful way to build or continue a tradition of family philanthropy.
  • No start-up cost: There is no cost to establish a donor-advised fund. However, there are often minimum initial charitable contributions to establish the DAF (typically $5,000 or more).
  • No transaction fees: Once approved, 100% of your recommended grant goes to your qualified charity of choice.**
  • Privacy if desired: Donors may choose to remain anonymous to the grant recipient.
