Donor Advised Funds

Donor Advised Funds

Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) have been in existence for nearly a century. Their accessibility, flexibility and convenience make them the fastest growing charitable giving vehicle.   

Donor Advised Funds through the Community Foundation empower everyday Arkansans to  pursue their philanthropic goals with the benefit of the Foundation staff’s expertise and experience to help facilitate their giving.

A Donor Advised Fund operates much like a private foundation, but without the expense and tax-reporting requirements.

Donor Advised Funds can be structured as a:

  • Charitable Distribution Fund,
  • Quasi Endowment, or
  • Permanent Endowment
