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, etc.) on the investment strategy for the charitable assets.




Brookview provided a safe home for my mom, my sisters and me. I was 10 years old when I started at Brookview, now I’m at the John D. O’Bryant Math and Science High School and maintaining good grades. Participating in Girls Who Code workshops was a huge help in my life. I was able to contribute everything I had learned in coding workshops in my everyday life. It helped me learn how to get out of my comfort zone and make new friends. My older sister is a high school graduate and is in college. My younger sister got into a better school due to Brookview. Brookview has programs where we get to learn so many new things about ourselves and the world around us. – Alexa
