Give simply

Strategic philanthropy is most effective when a donor considers when to give and what assets to gift. Open a philanthropic account at Vanguard Charitable with an initial, minimum contribution of $25,0001 and start enjoying the benefits of smart giving.

Once your account is established, you may make other charitable contributions and take a tax deduction, if applicable, at any time. Additional contributions must be $5,000 or more. This minimum is set in place to help our donors make a substantial philanthropic impact across years and generations.
