Make a Gift from your Donor Advised Fund
Many people over the past few years have established Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) with a community foundation or a national brokerage firm. A DAF allows them to take the income tax deduction when it is most advantageous to them and make the contributions to charity when they would like whenever they would like.
Example: Laura put $50,000 into a DAF at the San Antonio Area Foundation in 2018 to be able to take a charitable deduction that year. She would now like to contribute $10,000 to TMI.. She simply asks her DAF manager to send a check to TMI from her DAF or goes on-line to make the request herself. Simple and quick.
