Donor-advised funds are the fastest-growing charitable giving vehicle in the United States because they are one of the easiest and most tax-advantageous ways to give to charity.
A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is like a charitable investment account for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations you care about, such as Utah Open Lands.
When you contribute cash, securities or other assets to a donor-advised fund to Utah Open Lands, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction. Then those funds can be invested for tax-free growth, and you can recommend grants to virtually any IRS-qualified public charity.
How a donor-advised fund works
Make a tax-deductible donation
A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support Utah Open Lands.
If you have a donor advised fund, DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to Utah Open Lands directly from your DAF (as long as your DAF's sponsoring organization is participating).
