Donor Advised Funds
Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) are investment accounts for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations. If you have a DAF, you can use FreeWill’s DAF tool.
FreeWill’s DAF tool empowers you to make a targeted impact by recommending how you’d like your grant to be allocated, communicating your wishes to DSF, sharing the details of your DAF grant, and navigating to your DAF provider. It’s also a great way to ensure our organization has consistent financial support while saving cash for immediate needs.
Give from your IRA
If you are 70.5 or older and have a traditional IRA, you can use this secure online tool to make a donation from your IRA account. IRA gifts are generally not recognized as taxable income and if you must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) this year, giving from your IRA is a compassionate way to fulfill it.
Using this online tool, you can learn more and fill out the forms from your IRA custodian in just a few minutes, or print out the forms to fill them out offline.
Gifts of Stock
There are many ways you can leave a legacy gift and help sustain DSF, while providing significant tax benefits for your family and heirs. In addition to an outright, tax-deductible cash gift, there are other ways you can support our mission:
- a bequest in your will or living trust
- a beneficiary designation on a life insurance policy, 401(k) plan, or IRA
- an endowment
- gifts of stock or other assets
- life estate gifts
If you choose to name DSF in your will or other estate planning, please include the following information:
