One of the simplest and most tax-advantageous ways to donate, a donor advised fund is essentially an investment account that benefits Youth-Reach.

What are the benefits of a donor-advised fund?

  • Donors can give a wide variety of assets, including non-cash gifts such as stocks, cryptocurrency, bonds, life insurance, and private business interests.
  • Donors get to make the most out of their tax deductions.
  • Donors can invest their donor-advised fund, potentially growing even more dollars for charitable giving.
  • A donor-advised fund usually simplifies recordkeeping for charitable giving.
  • After a donor’s passing, the fund can be passed on to a charity, an individual, or a combination of both.
  • Donors support the life-changing work of Youth-Reach Gulf Coast.

How does a donor-advised fund work?

  1. Donors give cash or a range of non-cash assets to the donor-advised fund. These donors immediately qualify for a tax deduction.
  2. Donors grow their fund, tax-free, using a variety of investment options.
  3. Donors grant the money to YRGC from their fund, either all at once or over time.
