Does a Donor-Advised Fund Make Sense for Me? - January 30, 2019


Why use a donor-advised fund at Community Foundation Santa Cruz County when you can just write a check to your favorite charity? 

The answer depends on your needs and financial circumstances.

A donor-advised fund can:

  • Protect your privacy
  • Simplify your record keeping and tax reporting
  • Time your charitable deduction for when you need it most
  • Provide knowledge about local nonprofits working on causes you care about
