At Ridgefield Academy, we see more and more families carrying out their philanthropy through Donor-Advised Funds (DAF). As the fastest-growing charitable giving vehicles in the United States, these funds are easy to set up and offer favorable tax benefits so you can strategically support the organizations you care about. Setting up a DAF requires that you make a charitable contribution of cash, securities or other assets and receive an immediate tax deduction. Then, those DAF funds are invested for tax-free growth; you can even and you can recommend grants to virtually any IRS-qualified public charity, such as Ridgefield Academy. Our DAF vehicle below makes it easy to recommend a gift through your Donor-Advised Fund.
Did you know? $4-7 billion in matching gift revenue is unclaimed each year. Initiate a matching gift from your employer and you can double or triple the impact of your gift.
