Low-cost, convenient, and tax-efficient charitable giving. Learn how a DAF works.



Donate strategically, benefit greatly

Once you open a DAF and contribute assets, you take an immediate tax deduction. Vanguard Charitable is a 501(c)(3) public charity, so all contributions to your account are considered charitable donations.



Maximize impact, minimize cost

You recommend how the assets should be invested. We take care of the rest. Since assets are the property of Vanguard Charitable, your account can grow tax-free over time, allowing for a greater philanthropic impact.



Support charities you believe in

Find a charity you wish to support and recommend a grant. We will ensure the organization is a qualified 501(c)(3) charity and issue a grant check to the organization.



Leave a legacy of giving

Giving back can last a lifetime and beyond. Once your account is open and you make a contribution, you can craft a succession plan to establish a legacy of giving.
