As a donor, you make an irrevocable contribution of assets or cash, and receive an immediate tax deduction.

You choose how your contributions are invested by selecting from a variety of investment pools. Your investment is professionally managed in a the fund, and has the potential to grow in value, tax-free.

You choose the charities you wish to support. Any IRS-qualified charity is eligible. Your gifts are made on the timetable you select, in the amounts that you choose.

The Fund makes charitable giving easier, while helping you to better manage - and even expand - the scope of your philanthropy. You leave the paperwork to us. It's simple and effective.

Donors are advised to consult with a tax advisor for a complete explanation of IRS rules and the benefits of charitable giving.
