Individuals, families, and businesses with a wide range of community interests find that a donor-advised fund is the ideal vehicle for fulfilling their charitable goals. Among regional community foundations, The Denver Foundation is the largest and most experienced manager of donor-advised funds in the Rocky Mountain West. We listen to your aspirations and work closely with you to align your interests to support our community’s goals.
What is a donor-advised fund?
In the simplest terms, donor-advised funds allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax benefit, and then recommend grants from the fund over time.
An easy way to think about a donor-advised fund is that it is like a charitable bank account. A donor contributes to the fund as frequently as they like, and the fund is invested for potential growth. When they are ready, the donor recommends grants to their favorite charitable organizations.
