Donor Advised Funds

Donor Advised Funds make giving easy.

A Donor Advised Fund is an efficient and flexible charitable tool that allows you to support the charities of your choice at any time while enjoying immediate tax benefits. All that is required to set one up is an establishing gift of $2,000. Gifts can be made from your fund to qualified tax-exempt and religious organizations, locally and elsewhere. Whatever your philanthropic passions, JewishColumbus can help you design your own charitable giving plan. Set up a charitable fund with us and get the expert advise that enables you to support what you want, when you want, where you want. 


Become eligible for an immediate income tax deduction when you establish a Donor Advised Fund. 


Contributions are invested by JewishColumbus. 


You recommend grants to the charities you support when you want. 


  • You are able to recommend support for causes that interest you now and in the future. 
  • You may make recommendations for grants from both income and principal. 
  • You are eligible for an immediate income tax deduction for all amounts contributed to a donor advised fund (regardless of when distributions are made). 
  • No tax is paid on the income generated by the fund. 

Creating a Fund

A fund can be established with a tax-deductible contribution of cash, securities or other property to JewishColumbus. Then, based on your recommendations, JewishColumbus invests the funds and may make grants in the name of your fund to charitable, cultural or educational organizations that you recommend.
