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

Join us on Wednesday, August 14th, 9:30 to 11:00 a.m at the Foundation:
7807 Soquel Drive
Aptos, CA 95003
