DAFs have quickly become America’s most popular tool for charitable giving. DAFs are like your own private foundation but without any of the administrative red tape. One of the simplest ways to give real estate, stocks, mutual funds or commodities, DAFs offer an immediate tax deduction for the market value of your donation, but also allow you time to decide when you want to give. Administered through The Orchard Alliance, you will have 24/7 access to your DAF through Orchard’s state-of-the-art online DAF platform.

This platform allows you to login whenever and wherever you choose and make distributions in just a few clicks. DAFs offer the opportunity to create an easy-to-establish, low-cost, flexible vehicle for charitable giving as an alternative to direct giving or creating a private foundation.
