Make a Gift From My DAF

Search DAF organization:

Donor Advised Fund

Are you looking for a way to benefit Outer Banks both now and in the future? Would you like to simplify your annual and lifetime charitable giving?

A donor advised fund (or DAF) might be a great solution for you. You can also use a DAF to distribute gifts to numerous charities. With a DAF, you can make gifts to charity during your lifetime; in the future, 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 Outer Banks Community Foundation.
  2. The assets in the DAF grow tax-free.
  3. You make annual recommendations on gifts to be made from the DAF.
  4. If you wish, you may name one generation of successor advisors(s), who may recommend charitable gifts from the DAF.

More On Donor Advised Funds

A donor advised fund has several advantages when compared to a private foundation. The start-up time and cost are minimal for DAFs, and gifts to DAFs are generally deductible at fair market value. A DAF is also not subject to the distribution requirements and certain excise taxes faced by private foundations.

Make a Grant From the DAF

Grants from the DAF can be made beginning in the year after it is established. Use this form to make grant recommendations, and email it to scout@obcf.org. Thank you for considering a Donor Advised Fund and for supporting your community, through the Outer Banks Community Foundation.
