Donor-advised funds

What is a DAF? 

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized charitable account. It allows charitably-inclined individuals, families, and businesses to make tax-deductible charitable donations of cash, publicly-traded stock, and in some cases, certain illiquid assets, to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program.
