A Donor Advised Fund is a private fund administered by National Jewish Health that allows you significant control over the distribution of charitable gifts. A DAF makes it easy for you to support National Jewish Health and other favorite charities.
Your Own Charitable Fund
You can essentially create your own charitable foundation by setting up a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) through National Jewish Health. Starting with as little as $50,000, built up over two years, you can establish and exercise influence over a charitable fund.
Tax Benefits and Flexibility
When you make an irrevocable contribution to National Jewish Health to establish a Donor Advised Fund, you retain the right to advise on additional grant recipients. While a portion of your funds stay with National Jewish Health, you can also benefit other qualified charities.
You can use stocks, bonds, real estate or other assets to create your DAF.
Grants can be made over several years.
National Jewish Health handles all the paperwork; you will have none of the hassles or costs of forming a private foundation.
You will receive substantial tax benefits on 100% of your gift.
Responsibility for your fund can be shared by your family and passed on to your heirs.
While many financial institutions offer Donor Advised Funds, a DAF with National Jewish Health
provides you with unique benefits:
National Jewish Health handles all set-up and administrative tasks free of charge.
A National Jewish Health DAF is administered by a century-old institution you know and trust.
A National Jewish Health DAF supports life-saving medical care and research at America's top respiratory hospital.
