Gift Planning

Donor-Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund is an economically attractive alternative to a private foundation and an excellent opportunity to involve you and your family in a long-term charitable giving plan.

You may generally establish a donor-advised fund with an organization or financial institution simply by signing an agreement and then making a contribution to the fund. You will receive a charitable income-tax deduction for the value of your initial contribution to the fund. You may serve, or may designate another person to serve, as the fund advisor and make grant recommendations to RISD and other charities subject to the terms set forth by the organization or financial institution.
