Empower Your Giving: Donor-Advised Funds for Flexible and Impactful Philanthropy

Support ABS-CBN Foundation International (AFI) Through Your Donor Advised Fund

Utilize the benefits of a donor-advised fund (DAF), a charitable savings account that allows you to determine the amount and frequency of grants to AFI and other eligible charities. You have the freedom to recommend a single grant or recurring grants, providing an immediate or future impact.

DAFs, recognized as the fastest-growing charitable giving vehicle in the United States, function as investment accounts dedicated to charitable giving. They offer a cost-effective means of establishing and managing your charitable donations while providing some control over your tax situation.

By making an irrevocable gift to a donor-advised fund, you can receive a tax deduction in the year of the contribution. Once the contribution is made, the sponsoring organization assumes legal control over the funds, and you can make grant recommendations to your chosen charities.

Grant eligibility follows IRS guidelines, ensuring that grants are directed solely to qualified charities and not individuals.

With a Donor-Advised Fund, you receive tax documentation from the sponsoring organization rather than the charity itself, simplifying the process of managing your philanthropic contributions.

A gift for the future

Within donor-advised fund agreements, you often have the option to designate one or multiple beneficiaries who will receive the remaining assets of the fund upon your passing. Additionally, you can establish a family legacy of giving by appointing your loved ones as successors, enabling them to carry forward the responsibility of recommending charitable donations from your DAF to deserving organizations.

Contact your fund administrator for a beneficiary form.
