Donor Advised Funds

Donor advised funds are a popular way for individuals, families, and businesses to give to organizations. They can be endowed, so that the fund grants out a specific, growing amount each year; or set up as a non-permanent fund.

When you set up a donor advised fund at the Community Foundation, you’ll receive a tax deductible receipt for the amount you’ve put into your fund. Your fund is invested to grow sustainably over time, so that you and any successors you name on the fund can give towards organizations and causes that make our community extraordinary. 

At the Community Foundation we can help you start your donor advised fund with gifts of cash, stock, real estate, IRA rollovers and distributions, and more. 

Please contact our Director of Forever Lancaster, Ashlinn Masland-Sarani, at 717-397-1629 x118 to learn more about setting up a donor advised fund.
