A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a turnkey solution that allows clients to simplify their charitable giving, centralize tax reporting and potentially maximize deductions.

Did You Know?
An estimated 90% of tax filers use the standard deduction, which increased with the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (Note: many tax benefits/provisions, including the higher standard deduction, are set to expire in 2025). Due to the higher deduction amount, fewer people are benefiting from itemized deductions.*

Key Takeaway

For clients whose itemized deductions no longer exceed the standard deduction, a DAF provides an opportunity to recover a tax deduction and continue to support their preferred charities.
