How to Complete Your Gift
If you determine that a donor advised fund is the best way for your family to support Eastern Michigan University and other charities you love while meeting your financial goals, here are some things to consider and steps to take.
1. Evaluate the charitable organization carefully. When you make a gift to a donor advised fund, your gift is irrevocable. Make sure the donor advised fund you select is one that supports your values.
2. Understand the fund's policies and procedures. Minimum contributions, as well as the amount and frequency of grant recommendations, all vary depending on the sponsoring organization.
3. Consider costs and investment. All donor advised funds charge administrative fees that can vary considerably. In addition, investment performance will vary from one donor advised fund to the next, affecting the amount that will actually be distributable to charitable organizations.
