Donor Advised Funds
The Canada Gives Foundation account
Our customized Canada Gives Foundation accounts (also known as Donor Advised Funds, or DAFs) and proprietary Foundation Administration Platform empowers philanthropists and their families, helping them fund their preferred charities however and whenever they want with the help of their trusted advisors. A Canada Gives Foundation account offers the same funding choices and executive privileges as a private foundation, but with lower administrative costs and far greater flexibility.
A Canada Gives Foundation account enables a donor to benefit from immediate tax savings for the full value of their donation and at the same time, enables them to develop a charitable giving plan for disbursing the funds to individual charities. That way, your gift can help to meet both the immediate and longer-term funding needs for the charitable programs that matter most to you.
