At VCF, we offer an array of donor advised funds for individual or charitable organization donors that generate granting dollars for various purposes. They range from projects supporting youth at risk to providing training scholarships to women in the process of leaving prison. Operating similarly to a trust or endowment, a donor advised fund is a form of charitable fund that is a cost-effective alternative to the creation of a charitable foundation. Simply put, our donor advised fund allows you to create a lasting legacy, in order to generate grants for charitable purposes in your community.
In addition to perks like plenty of warm and fuzzies, advantages include the fact that a donor advised fund is a beneficial tax and estate planning vehicle for an individual that helps retain financial resources for the community. Not to mention, a charitable fund of this nature enables you to strategically focus on that which matters most to you on a values level.
