Donor Advised Funds (DAF)

Are you looking for a way to benefit EWTN both now and in the future? Would you like to simplify and streamline your annual and lifetime charitable giving?  Have you ever considered perpetuating your current annual donations?

A DAF might be a great solution for you. You can also use a DAF to distribute gifts (grants) to other charitable causes that align with your Catholic values. With a DAF, you can make gifts to charities during your lifetime, and when you pass away, your children or entity such as EWTN, can carry on your legacy of giving.

Since Donor Advised Funds are one of the fasted growing charitable vehicles, you may already have established a fund, please know that since EWTN is a 501 c 3 charitable organization we can accept grants from your fund.

Introducing the EWTN Donor-Advised Fund

In collaboration with the Knight of Columbus Charitable Fund, EWTN has established the EWTN Donor Advised Fund. One of the reasons faithful Catholics consider the EWTN Donor Advised Fund is that they have the confidence knowing that their funds will only be invested in companies whose products and services do not contradict Catholic moral teaching. If your current DAF does not give you this option and you would like to move your DAF from your current custodian to the EWTN DAF there is no cost involved in accomplishing this transfer. The transfer will also give you better piece of mind knowing that your hard-earned money is not supporting organizations that are in opposition to the magisterial teachings of Holy Mother Church.

Benefits of the EWTN Donor-Advised Fund

• You make an irrevocable contribution of personal assets, including cash, stock, real estate and more.
• You immediately receive the maximum tax deduction that the IRS allows.
• You name your donor-advised fund account, advisors, and any successors or charitable beneficiaries.
• Your contribution is placed into a donor-advised fund account where it can be invested and potentially grow tax-free.
• At any time afterward, you can recommend grants from your account to EWTN or other qualified charities.
