Give Through Your Donor Advised Fund Page:

A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) acts as a charitable investment account. Your DAF contributions are eligible for an immediate tax deduction, allowing you the flexibility of both investing funds for tax-free growth and recommending grants to charitable organizations you care about. If you already have a DAF, you can request a one-time or monthly gift to Sojourner House by contacting your Donor-Advised Fund provider.
