Are you looking for a way to benefit ASU Foundation both now and in the future? Would you like to simplify your annual and lifetime charitable giving?
As a direct impact charity, the ASU Foundation doesn't offer a Donor Advised Fund program that would allow gifts to be dispersed beyond the ASU programs; however we would relish the opportunity to explore how ASU is impacting every aspect of life on this planet and ensure that your gift is used when and how you want it to be used.
Also, we are a 501(c)(3) organization and eligible for distributions from Donor Advised Funds.
You can also use a DAF to distribute gifts to numerous charities. With a DAF, you can make gifts to charity during your lifetime, and when you pass away, your children can carry on your legacy of giving.
A donor advised fund has several advantages when compared to a private foundation. The start-up time and cost are minimal for DAFs, and gifts to DAFs are generally deductible at fair market value. A DAF is also not subject to the distribution requirements and certain excise taxes faced by private foundations.
If you have any questions about donor advised funds, please contact us. We would be happy to assist you and answer any questions you might have.
