What is a Donor Advised Fund? And how does it work?

Your Donor Advised Fund works like a ‘charitable bank account’ – claim a deduction now and decide later when your favorite nonprofits, like the Southwest Florida Women’s Foundation, will receive the funds. You retain control and family influence over your charitable dollars.
