Are you looking for a way to benefit Trout Unlimited both now and in the future? Would you like to simplify your annual and lifetime charitable giving?
A donor advised fund (or DAF) might be a great solution for you. You can use a DAF to distribute gifts to Trout Unlimited, your local chapter, and numerous charities. With a DAF, you can make charitable gifts during your lifetime, and when you pass away, your children can carry on your legacy of giving.
A donor advised fund has several advantages when compared to a private foundation. The start-up time and cost are minimal for DAFs, and gifts to DAFs are generally deductible at fair market value. A DAF is also not subject to the distribution requirements and certain excise taxes faced by private foundations.
If you have any questions about donor advised funds, please contact us. While Trout Unlimited does not sponsor Donor Advised Funds, we would be happy to work with you to identify a sponsor and answer any questions you might have.
