The Foundation's Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) are popular charitable giving funds that allow donors to make tax-deductible contributions, receive an immediate tax benefit, and then recommend grants from the fund to the charitable organizations of their choice over time. Donors may establish a Donor-Advised Fund with a gift or pledge of $5,000 or more over a five-year period using a simple Gift Instrument that sets forth the terms of the fund.  Donor-Advised Funds are separately accounted for within the Foundation. The PDNCF provides annual accounting of the fund to the donor.  There are many benefits of Donor-Advised Funds including tax-deductibility of gifts, investment support, administrative support, donor recognition, low overhead and support fees, high transparency and accountability. It's like having your own foundation.
