Donor Advised Funds

Did you know you could impact your community by establishing a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) at the Kearney Area Community Foundation? But, what is a DAF? A Donor Advised Fund is a type of charitable giving fund that is established by a donor with our Community Foundation to support causes that the donor cares about. A Donor Advised Fund allows the donor to remain involved and active in charitable giving by retaining “advising privileges” to recommend how KACF should make grants from the fund. This allows donors to be strategic with their tax planning by allowing every deposit into the fund to be tax deductible within that same year*. The donor advisors may choose to give grants at any time, that can be made to other nonprofits, not necessarily in the same year.

In order to establish a Donor Advised Fund, a donor must provide an initial contribution, whether that be cash, assets or stock. A DAF will be established (and board approved) prior to KACF accepting the first gift. In addition, our staff is here to help advise donors on the local charitable organizations they may like to support. Not sure who to help this holiday season? Stop by our office here at the Kearney Area Community Foundation, 412 W 48th St. Suite #12, Kearney, and we would love to discuss your interests and share our knowledge of local nonprofits with you! All you have to do is create and name your fund! The Kearney Area Community Foundation will assist in administrative oversight and provide receipts for tax purposes*. *As always, please check with your tax adviser regarding the deductibility of your gifts.

If you are interested in setting up a Donor Advised Fund with the Kearney Area Community Foundation, please call our office at (308) 237-3114. Thank you!

This list of charitable funds was established by you, the charitable individuals of the Kearney area, since 1995. It is a powerful testimony to the causes and institutions you consider vital to our community’s well-being.
