Is This Gift Right for You?
For donors who want to stay involved in advising on the use of their gifts, a donor advised fund offers participation without being as restrictive or as expensive to operate as a private foundation. Review this checklist to help you further determine whether this way to give works well for you.
A donor advised fund typically charges a 1 percent annual administration fee. Others charge an annual fee, such as $25, plus a fee for each transaction, such as $5.
