Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund at the Foundation allows donors to the University to make a charitable contribution and receive an immediate tax benefit, while being able to recommend distributions over time to support your University areas of interest as well as other qualified charitable organizations that support educational, cultural or youth programs. The fund's income is tax-free, allowing you to make the most of your charitable giving.

Our goal is to help the University family maximize the impact of its charitable giving. Learn more about the Foundation's donor advised fund program.
