Gift Planning

Donor-Advised Fund


How It Works

  1. You make a contribution to a donor-advised fund at an organization or financial institution
  2. You advise where you want to make grants including to RISD where you want to make grants
  3. You may make recommendations for additional grants to approved charities


  • You create a fund to support RISD and other charities
  • You receive an income-tax deduction for your original contribution to the fund
  • Your fund will receive professional asset management
  • You have the flexibility of making grants to charities on a flexible timetable
