Gifts from Donor-Advised Funds

During your lifetime, you can recommend a gift from your donor-advised fund (DAF) to support the life-saving efforts of the American Lung Association.

If you would like to make a gift now through your DAF, simply select the link below to find your fund:

Create Your Legacy of Philanthropy

Did you know that the final distribution of contributions remaining in your DAF after your lifetime can be designated when you create or update your fund?

We hope you will consider naming the American Lung Association as a beneficiary of your charitable giving fund. You may even designate the Lung Association to receive a portion of the account value, leaving the remaining portion for your children or grandchildren to continue your legacy of philanthropy.

Let Us Know

If you decide to change your beneficiary designation, would you please let us know? We would like to recognize you for your generosity and ensure that your gift is used as you intend.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about setting up your legacy gift or if you need more information.

Six Ways You Can Make an Impact with Your DAF

Memorialize, honor or commemorate a loved one or an event.
Avoid capital gains by first transferring appreciated stock to your DAF and then gifting it in minutes.
Teach your loved ones about charity and why you believe in giving back.
Build a sense of community (and make a bigger impact) by forming “giving circles” with other donor-advised fund owners including friends and family members.
Bundle your charitable gifts (doing so could result in an opportunity to itemize your deductions in the same year).
Leave all, or a portion of, your account to charity simply by changing your beneficiary designation.
