Gifts from Donor Advised Funds
Make an Impact with your Donor-Advised Fund
Create Your Legacy of Philanthropy
If you decide to change your beneficiary designation, would you let us know? We would like to recognize you for your generosity and ensure that your gift is used as you intend.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about setting up your legacy gift or if you need more information.
I invite you to contact me so we can chat about easy ways to make an impact using your donor-advised fund.
6 ways you can make an impact with your donor-advised fund
Memorialize, honor, or commemorate a loved one or an event.
Avoid capital gains by first transferring appreciated stock to your DAF and then gifting it in minutes.
Teach your loved ones about charity and why you believe in giving back.
Build a sense of community (and make a bigger impact) by forming “giving circles” with other donor-advised fund owners including friends and family members.
Bundle your charitable gifts (doing so could result in an opportunity to itemize your deductions in the same year).
Leave all or a portion of your account to charity simply by changing your beneficiary designation.
We hope you will consider naming your parish or the Archdiocese of Chicago as a beneficiary of your account. You may even designate your parish or the Archdiocese of Chicago to receive a portion of the account value, leaving the remaining portion for your children or grandchildren to continue your legacy of philanthropy.
