Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes. DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to Women for Women International, directly from your DAF (as long as your DAF's sponsoring organization is participating).

How does it work?

  1. Establish your DAF by making an irrevocable, tax-deductible donation to Women for Women International.
  2. Advise the investment allocation of the donated assets (any investment growth is tax-free).
  3. Recommend grants to the charities you support, with the option of being recognized or remaining anonymous.

Gifts of Stock and Securities

Donating stock or securities is a great way to support Women for Women International while receiving potential tax benefits. You could earn a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the securities and avoid capital gains tax on securities that have increased in value, provided you have owned them for one year.

Please alert us in advance by providing the stock name, symbol and number of shares you plan to donate, so that we can ensure that you receive a tax receipt and acknowledgement.

Gifts of publicly traded securities that have appreciated in value allow you to claim a charitable deduction on the full market value--with no capital gains tax on the appreciation.
