- Pay a pledge made by a giver to another charitable organization

What is a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)?
A donor advised fund is a charitable account that a 501c3 sponsoring organization has legal control over while the donor retains advisory privileges.
What are the benefits of a Donor Advised Fund (DAF)?
A DAF provides you the opportunity to take part in the grantmaking process without the work and expense of operating a private foundation. Giving with a DAF can be a tax-efficient way to conduct your philanthropy. DAFs can reduce your tax liability while increasing your charitable impact.
What privileges would I retain if I established a Donor Advised Fund (DAF)?
DAF holders can recommend grants to eligible community organizations. TTF performs due diligence to ensure the recommended grantees are qualified, viable organizations in good standing. Grants are then approved by both the DAF holder and the TTF Board of Directors.
Who can open a Donor Advised Fund with the Ten Talents Foundation?
Anyone who has heart for helping our community can give through TTF. Starting a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) with TTF requires an initial deposit of $10,000. You can also make a gift of any amount at any time to one of TTF’s general unrestricted funds.
