Donor Advised Fund

A Personal Approach To Giving. How it works:

  • Make a gift of cash, appreciated stock, real estate or other assets.
  • Set up a special fund in your name, family name or business or in honor of any person or organization you desire.
  • You receive tax benefits in the year your gift is made.
  • You recommend uses for the fund – working with our staff to support the causes and organizations you care about most.
  • Your recommendations are presented to the Wayne Community Foundation board for approval.
  • We handle the administration details and issue grants to charities in the name of the fund you establish.
  • Your gift can be placed in an endowment that is invested over time. Earnings from your fund are used to make grants addressing community needs. Your gift – and all future earnings from your gift – is a permanent source of community capital, helping to do good work forever.
