Donor Advised Funds

At City Garden School, we believe in the power of education to transform lives and build a brighter future. Your support plays a crucial role in ensuring that every child has access to quality education. One effective way to contribute to our mission is through Donor Advised Funds (DAFs). This innovative giving method allows you to maximize the impact of your charitable donations while enjoying flexibility and tax benefits.

What is a Donor Advised Fund (DAF)?

A Donor Advised Fund is a philanthropic vehicle that allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time. It's a simple, efficient, and flexible way to manage your charitable giving.

Why Choose a Donor Advised Fund for Your Donation?

1. Tax Advantages: DAFs offer immediate tax benefits, allowing you to deduct your contribution in the year it's made. This enables you to optimize your tax strategy while supporting City Garden School.

2. Strategic Giving: With a DAF, you have the ability to recommend grants to City Garden School and other charitable organizations over time. This strategic approach allows you to plan and allocate your contributions according to your philanthropic goals.

3. Simplicity and Convenience: Managing your charitable giving is streamlined through a DAF. No need to track multiple individual donations – a single contribution to your DAF can be distributed to multiple charities, including City Garden School.

How to Make a Donation to City Garden School through Your Donor Advised Fund

1. Initiate a Grant Recommendation: Login to your Donor Advised Fund account and recommend a grant to City Garden Grade School. You can typically do this through your fund manager's online portal or by using the form above.

2. Specify City Garden School as the Recipient: Ensure that you provide the necessary details for City Garden School, including our official name, address, and tax identification number (if required). This information is available on our website or cane be obtained by contacting our development office.

3. Distribution of Funds: Once your recommendation is submitted, the fund manager will review and process the grant. The funds will then be distributed to City Garden School in accordance with your instructions.
