Donor-Advised Fund Donations

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a fast-growing charitable program which allows donors to make a contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time. If you have a DAF, you can recommend grants directly to support POST. Donors recommend donations to POST from many DAFs – popularly Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable and Silicon Valley Community Foundation.
