Donor Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund (DAF) acts like a philanthropic savings account. It is a type of giving program that allows you to combine tax benefits with the flexibility to recommend the amount and the frequency of gifts to your favorite charities like Stone Ridge.

Why give through a DAF?

  • Simple: The DAF sponsor handles all record-keeping, disbursements and tax receipts, while you avoid the cost and complexities of managing a private foundation.
  • Flexible: The timing of your tax deduction can be separate from your charitable decision-making.
  • Tax Savvy: You are eligible for a charitable income tax deduction in the year you make a DAF contribution, and contributions grow tax-free. Additionally, your DAF will not be subject to estate taxes.
  • Legacy: A gift through a donor-advised fund is a meaningful way to strengthen your family’s tradition of philanthropy.
