A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable investment account that donors can use to support their giving. DAFs offer the favorable tax benefits of giving directly to charities with added flexibility around timing of gifts.

DAF assets are invested for growth by the sponsoring organization (for example, Fidelity Charitable or Schwab Charitable) and donors then recommend grants at any time to qualified 501(c)(3) charitable organizations, such as the Salem State University Foundation (04-2620632).

If you have a DAF with Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable or BNY Mellon, you can easily recommend a grant using the DAF Direct form on this page, or by contacting the fund advisor.
