Donor-Advised Fund

How They Work and Key Advantages

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving account managed, maintained and operated by a 501 (c )(3) sponsoring organization.

  • You can fund your DAF with cash, stock, real estate and other assets to maximize your tax benefits. Then recommend a grant from the DAF to the REED Foundation for Autism.
  • Donor-advised funds can maximize charitable giving by accelerating charitable deductions in the current year.
  • After your lifetime, your gift will be used to benefit the REED Foundation for Autism.
  • You can name the Foundation as your DAF beneficiary which designates remaining funds towards our mission.

For your DAF grant request, please notify Lisa Goldstein at and use the Foundation’s Federal Tax ID: 81-2683921.
