Donor-Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized charitable account held at a sponsoring charity. Donors contribute to the account, receive an immediate tax benefit, and are then able to recommend grants to eligible nonprofits over time.

The ASN Foundation is pleased to accept DAF recommended grants. For recommending the grant you will receive soft credit from the Foundation and included as a donor on the website and other promotional materials (if desired). The grant amount will also count towards your annual and lifetime giving totals.

IRA Charitable Rollover

If you are 70 ½ years old or older, you may be able to give up to $100,000 from your individual retirement account (IRA) directly to qualified charities, such as the ASN Foundation for Kidney Research, without having to pay income taxes on the money.

It is recommended that you contact your plan administrator to determine if your account is eligible.
