Take Control of Your Charitable Dollars

If you like controlling the timing of your charitable giving and your income tax deduction, then a Donor Advised Fund makes sense. It’s generally easy to establish and is a hassle-free way of giving to your favorite causes. Benefits include:

• Get an income tax deduction now, and give to charity later
• Easily make contributions anonymously
• Maximize your tax deductions
• Control the timing of your deduction and donation
• Effortlessly give anonymously to the charity
• Pass ownership to children or friends to create a legacy

If any of these benefits appeal to you, then a Donor Advised Fund may be right for you. It allows you more control of your charitable dollars, especially for maximizing your charitable income tax deductions. Your account administrator invests the fund, and you can make gifts to charities from it when you want.

Cool Mornings, Warm Memories. Winter days may be cooler, but the memories are warmer. As you spend time with your family and friends this season, think about how important they are to you and how vital you are to them. The people and causes in our lives represent an investment in our hopes, dreams, and aspirations. We would not be the same without them.

Take time to plan your legacy. Write your will or update the one you have. When you do, you will wrap yourself in the warmth of knowing you have taken care of everyone and everything valuable to you.

Planning is not about things. It gives voice to your values and continues the love and care that has exemplified your life.

You may mention others in your plan, but your plan is really for you. It gives you peace of mind, even as it gives a piece of you to others.

We are here to help. There are many ways we can help you fulfill your philanthropic goals. Contact Vice President of Advancement and Development and Executive Director for the Foundation, Jackie Cruz at or call (831) 444-2446.
