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.
6 ways you can make an impact with your donor-advised fund
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.
We hope you will consider naming the American Lung Association as a beneficiary of your account. You may even designate the American 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.
