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 lgoldstein@reedfoundationforautism.org and use the Foundation’s Federal Tax ID: 81-2683921.
