DONOR-ADVISED FUNDS FOR INDIVIDUALS
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a philanthropic vehicle established at a public charity. It allows you to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax benefit, and then recommend grants from the fund over time. Assets in a donor-advised fund can grow tax free. For the donor there are no distribution requirements, excise taxes, or reporting requirements. By starting an account with Knights of Columbus Charitable Fund (KCCF), you'll take the first important step toward maximizing your giving. Simply designate the charities to whom you want to give, and we'll take it from there.
Contributing to charities through a donor-advised fund with Knights of Columbus Charitable Fund means total certainty that you are driving your philanthropy to charities and causes aligned to your Catholic faith. We encourage you to involve the entire family in your giving through KCCF, as well, which can initiate a culture of generosity among your children that may ensure your legacy lasts generations. The fund is user-friendly, makes your giving more consistent and potentially provides a tax benefit commensurate with your investment.
