Donor Advised Funds

A donor advised fund allows you to manage your charitable giving simply and efficiently. If you support multiple organizations or you want to secure a charitable deduction now but designate beneficiaries later, a donor advised fund may work for you. 

Donor advised funds can be established with a number of entities, including community foundations, financial services companies and charities—including The Nature Conservancy.
