Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) offer a strategic and simplified approach to philanthropy, allowing you, your family, or your estate to make a lasting impact on the community while avoiding the complexities of managing your own trust or foundation. With The Community’s Foundation (TCF) as your partner, you gain access to expert administrative support, freeing you from overseeing day-to-day operations. This enables you to focus your efforts and resources on the charitable initiatives and causes that resonate most with your values and vision. DAFs at TCF can be initiated with an accessible minimum contribution of just $5,000, making philanthropy accessible to a wide range of individuals and families.

At TCF, we understand that each donor’s philanthropic journey is unique. With a Donor Advised Fund, you retain the right to recommend grants over time, giving you the flexibility to support charitable endeavors according to your own timeline and preferences.

If you’re interested in exploring the potential of Donor Advised Funds or would like to learn more about how this philanthropic tool can align with your charitable goals, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at info@TCFhelps.org.

We are here to guide and support you in making a meaningful and enduring difference in your community through strategic giving.
