A donor-advised fund, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to the African Wildlife Foundation (AWF) and other qualified charities. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now to make an immediate impact or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts.

You can also create a lasting legacy by naming AWF the beneficiary of the entire account or a percentage of the fund. With a percentage, you can create a family legacy of giving by naming your loved ones as your successor to continue recommending grants to charitable organizations. Contact your fund administrator for a beneficiary form.

An Example of How It Works
Joe and Laura want to give back to their hometown by putting their money where it will do the most good. They establish a $25,000 donor-advised fund with a community foundation.
The couple receives a federal income tax charitable deduction for the amount of the gift. They also get the time they need to decide which charities to support.
After researching community needs with the foundation’s staff, Joe and Laura recommend grants for AWF (which they’ve supported for years) and a local animal shelter. The foundation presents the charities with checks from the Patricia Fund, which Joe and Laura named in honor of Laura’s mother. They name AWF as the beneficiary to receive the account balance after their lifetimes. Joe and Laura are delighted to start this personal legacy of giving.
