Donor Advised Fund Giving

Donor Advised Funds (DAF) are a simple, flexible and tax-efficient way to manage your charitable donations. Donor Advised Funds allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time.

Gifts made to Catholic Charities through Donor Advised Funds can be designated wherever the need is greatest or to service areas that match your interest, such as housing stability and opportunity, children and families, older adults and people with disabilities, or advocacy.

Clients of Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, and BNY Mellon can easily make a recommendation through the DAF Direct window on this page.

For more information, please connect with a Catholic Charities staff member by calling (612) 204-8500.

Or recommend a DAF grant from your fund at a local community foundation:

Catholic Community Foundation
Minneapolis Foundation
Saint Paul and Minnesota Foundation
