Donor-advised funds, Stock Donations and IRA Distribution

Donor-Advised Funds
Put Your Charitable Dollars to Work!

Invest in For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation! A Donor-Advised Fun, or DAF, allows you as a donor to receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time. You can contribute to the fund as frequently as you would like and recommend grants to FPS when it makes sense! You become a “donor advisor” and retain advisory privileges over the investment allocation for the DAF.

Donations from a DAF can be made to any charitable organizations that are listed as tax-exempt under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501(c)(3) and public charities under IRS Section 509(a). Grants can also be made to private operating foundations or state or local government organizations qualified to receive tax-deductible charitable contributions.
