Advise Us Fund's Andrew Hibel talks to the Association of Fundraising Professionals - Southeastern Wisconsin about Philanthropy and Donor-Advised Funds.

“Charities may not like feeling a step removed from donors, but donor-advised funds encourage donors to make the leap from giving cash to giving assets. As donors add dimension to their giving, they tend to give more. These funds become the on-ramp to true major giving.” - Andrew Hibel.

Teaching Philanthropy with Donor-Advised Funds!

A donor-advised fund can be a great way to teach children about philanthropy. Here’s how it could work:

1, Open a donor-advised fund at a sponsoring organization.
2, Make a charitable contribution to your donor-advised fund.
3, Work with your grandchildren and help them identify worthy charities.
4, Direct the donor-advised fund to grant money to the designated charity.

The sponsoring organization handles all the administrative details related to your fund. In exchange for an annual fee — usually 1.25 percent or less — it will see to the accounting, tax filing, grant administration, and regulatory compliance. You and your grandchildren will be free to focus on grant making.

If you contribute to a donor-advised fund, you can take a charitable tax deduction for the full amount now but take as much time as you want to decide which charities to support. #PlannedGiving #Giving #Charities
