Give Through A DAF
How You Can Help
You can recommend a grant to Association House of Chicago through your DAF at any time with DAF Direct.
How It Works
A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a centralized vehicle for charitable giving that makes it easy for donors to dedicate funds to support their favorite nonprofit organization. It also provides an operationally convenient and tax-efficient method for donors to manage their charitable giving. Make a charitable contribution to receive an immediate tax deduction and recommend grants from the fund over time.
Grants made to Association House through Donor-Advised Funds can be designated in one of two ways:
For use in a specific area that matches your interests, such as high school, workforce development, community health, or behavioral health
For use wherever the need is greatest
DAF Direct facilitates grant recommendations from donors of Fidelity Charitable®, Schwab Charitable®, and the BNY Mellon Charitable Gift Fund®. You can make a designation through the DAF Direct window on this page.
To make a DAF gift from another institution, reach out to your fund holder and nominate a grant to Association House of Chicago, EIN 36-2166961.
There are no fees for using DAF Direct - 100% of the funds transfer to the recommended nonprofit, with no administration or transaction fees for using the DAF Direct service.
