Donor Advised Funds (DAF) are a flexible and convenient tool to support the good work being done in our Eastern Jackson County communities. A DAF can help you reduce your tax burden, grow your assets, and achieve your charitable goals. For a lot of philanthropic donors, it makes a lot of sense. Gift today. Grant tomorrow. One of the key benefits to this type of fund is that it allows you to get the tax advantages of giving when the timing is best for you while deferring the delivery of your gift to its final charitable purpose. Is there a project or capital campaign you want to support sometime in the future? A special one-time gift to honor an upcoming milestone? Or do you want to make your traditional end-of-year contributions? You can use your DAF to schedule your giving to work with your timeline. As a bonus, you can still realize the tax benefits in the year you made contributions to your fund. Another advantage is that your money is professionally invested and could be growing tax-free while it waits for distribution to your charities of choice. Everybody wins. THCF fundholders have the freedom to choose to have their professional advisor manage the funds in their DAF (now assets of THCF). This enables your advisor to provide better financial advice since they are more aware of your charitable giving program and plans. As you build your DAF, you’re helping your favorite nonprofits meet the needs of the communities they serve. Your passionate participation in the growth and prosperity of our Eastern Jackson County communities can be felt with every grant you make from your fund.
