Gift Planning

Donor-Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund (DAF) can provide you with immediate tax benefits while making your charitable giving easier for years to come.  An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and also facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.

Two Ways to Support the Brigham From Your Donor-Advised Fund

  1. Create a legacy—To continue your support after your lifetime, name the Brigham as a beneficiary/successor of your account. Or you can designate the Brigham to receive a portion of the account value. The remaining balance can be managed by your loved ones to continue your legacy of giving.
  2. Recommend a grant—You can recommend that your donor-advised funds are used to support the Brigham. It’s easy to do. Contact your fund administrator to request a distribution form or download the form from your administrator’s website and recommend that funds be distributed to the Brigham.
