What is a donor-advised fund?

A donor-advised fund (DAF) provides donors with a centralized charitable giving vehicle. It allows philanthropically inclined individuals, families, and corporations to make an irrevocable charitable gift to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program and take an immediate tax deduction. Most sponsoring organizations of DAFs accept cash equivalents, securities, and certain other assets.

Dedicate a gift in honor of a loved one.

Contributions may honor those closest to you. Please review the naming opportunity document and consider making a donation in honor of a family member, close friend or group.

A note regarding domicile and taxation:

Connecticut does not consider charitable contributions in determining domicile for income or inheritance tax. A Campaign contribution will not affect tax domicile.
