How would you like to make a gift today that would enable you and your loved ones to continue to make charitable gifts in the future? When you make a gift of cash or other assets to THCF, we take your tax-deductible contribution and establish a special fund in your name. Your account is then invested to grow over time, permitting you to send grants to your favorite charitable organizations throughout the year. A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is like having your own family foundation, only better. Your donations to your DAF are invested for growth, which permits you to direct gifts of income and principal to the causes that mean most to you while you are alive. When you pass, your children can direct distributions from your fund for years to come. A DAF offers you and your family a flexible and easy-to-establish vehicle for charitable giving. Compared to private foundation gifts, DAF gifts generally qualify for a full fair market value charitable deduction and have lower startup costs. A DAF also permits you to make grants to charity without the unfavorable private foundation restrictions and excise taxes. Opening a DAF account is easy to do. Simply contact Cole Eason, Vice President of Advancement, for more information. You can fund your account with a gift of cash, securities, real estate, or other assets. Check with us if you have unique or special assets that may be donated in a tax-efficient way. We are here to help you and your family leave a lasting mark on the region.
