A donor advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your favorite charities. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.

After establishing a donor-advised fund, the donor may recommend grants to qualified public charities. They may also advise the sponsoring organization (e.g. Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable or the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation) on the investment strategy for the charitable assets.




Ayisha is a Certified Nurse Assistant, works as a Home Health Aide and attends the Radiology program at Bunker Hill Community College.

“Brookview was not just a temporary place to stay, it was a place we called home. All five of my siblings participated in the Above & Beyond after school program. We gained multiple skills – communications, advocacy, and how to become self-sufficient. We learned how to set educational and career goals. The program taught me to gain my self-control, build my motivation and self-esteem. I graduated with a GPA of 4.0.”
