What is the difference between a donor-advised fund and a private foundation, and which one should I use for my charitable giving?
The holiday season is a magical time when families can come together to share warmth, love, and the spirit of giving. Whether you’re reuniting with loved ones from afar, welcoming college students back home, or just enjoying a break from work and school, it’s a perfect moment to foster a sense of togetherness and community engagement.

As the end of 2023 approaches, charitable giving may be at the forefront of your year-end planning. We’ve identified three key elements we believe are crucial to philanthropic strategies, allowing donors to navigate tax complexities, maximize their charitable contributions, and help ensure a brighter future for the causes they hold dear.

You likely want your charitable donations to be as effective as possible when you give. A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable investment account to support the organizations you care about. DAFs are one of the fastest-growing giving vehicles in the United States because they are one of the easiest and most tax-advantageous ways to give to charity.
