Advantages of a Donor-Advised Fund as the Charitable Component of your Financial Strategy

For those who want to give back, one of the first decisions that must be made is to determine what philanthropic tools are best suited for one’s individual charitable goals and financial circumstances. One philanthropic vehicle that has skyrocketed in popularity over the past decade, is the donor-advised fund, or DAF. For nearly a century, DAFs have been offered by local community foundations. More recently, DAFs have become available through the charitable extension of wealth management organizations such as Peak Trust Company’s Donor-Advised Fund (PTDAF).
