Donor Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is a philanthropic vehicle established at a public charity like Fidelity or Schwab. It allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax benefit and then recommend giving from the fund over time.

An easy way to think about a donor-advised fund is like a charitable savings account: you contribute to the fund as frequently as you like and then recommends "grant" or donations to your favorite charity when you are ready.

If you have an already established Donor Advised Fund (DAF), then you can use the form below to recommend PAWS (Progressive Animal Welfare Society, Inc) as a beneficiary of funds. If your DAF sponsoring organization does not participate in DAF Direct, please contact them directly to initiate your recommendation.
