Donor-Advised Funds

What is a donor-advised fund?

A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is essentially a charitable savings account, which gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to Northside Hospital Foundation and other charities.

You transfer cash or other assets to a tax-exempt sponsoring organization such as a public foundation. In return, you receive an immediate federal income tax charitable deduction at the time you contribute to the account. This also allows for a centralized giving and record-keeping system in one location. In addition, you eliminate the cost and complexities of managing a private foundation.

In order to take deductions when you prepare your 2017 taxes in the coming months, you must give by December 31st.
