Donor-Advised Fund

Are you looking for a way to simplify your charitable giving - one that frees you from administrative details and allows you to focus on all you hope to accomplish with your giving? A Donor Fund (DAF) might be a great solution. You can also use a DAF to easily distribute a gift of appreciated assets to numerous charities.

How a Donor Advised Fund Works

  1. You irrevocably transfer cash or securities to World Vision.
  2. Recommend grants to World Vision projects and other charities on your timetable.
  3. World Vision uses the funds for its programs around the world.
  4. Your fund can grow tax-free.


  • Receive an immediate tax deduction.
  • Avoid capital gains tax on donated appreciated assets.
  • Avoid administrative hassles - World Vision handles all of the details for you.
  • Distribute grants anonymously, if you prefer.
  • Name other individuals to make grant recommendations on your behalf, should you wish, both during and after your lifetime.
  • Make a difference for children around the world.
