Donor advised funds allow you to combine favorable tax benefits with flexibility in giving. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, donor advised funds are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals, including gifts to FOCUS’s YES Program. These funds are established through your stock broker or financial planner.

If you have a DAF established, you can recommend a gift to FOCUS using the “DAF Direct” app on our website. Neither you nor FOCUS will incur any additional costs or transaction fees for giving through DAF Direct. Simply enter the amount, click next, and you will be taken to your financial institution’s website to complete gift. DAF Direct currently works with funds established through Fidelity, Schwab, and the Kansas City Community Foundation.
