Donor-Advised Funds

A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) is the equivalent of a charitable savings account that will help you simplify your annual and lifetime charitable giving. One DAF can allow you to distribute gifts to numerous ministries over time.

Benefits of a Donor-Advised Fund


How a Donor-Advised Fund Works

To start a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF), you make an initial, irrevocable gift of cash or an appreciated asset to the Nazarene Foundation. The assets in your DAF will grow tax-free, and you can continue to contribute money to it as often as you desire. Whenever you see a ministry need that you would like to support, you simply make a recommendation to us and we'll distribute the money on your behalf. We handle writing the checks and all of the paperwork, so all of your giving can come from one simple place.
