Make a Grant Through Your Donor-Advised Fund
What is a donor-advised fund?
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your favorite charities such as the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.
How does it work?
- Establish your DAF by making an irrevocable, tax-deductible donation to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program.
- Advise the investment allocation of the donated assets (any investment growth is tax-free)
- Recommend grants to qualified public charities of your choice
You can support SSSF through any purchase from online retailer Amazon, just by designating SSSF as your charity of choice. When you access the Amazon site through a special link, Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to SSSF at no additional cost to you.
