Donor Advised Funds

Your gift can change the lives of individuals with vision loss

What is a donor-advised fund (DAF)?

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a philanthropic giving vehicle that provides an immediate tax benefit to you and allows you to grant funds to charities of your choice. A donor-advised fund may sound like something that’s only for the ultra-wealthy, but it’s actually accessible to anyone who makes charitable contributions. Think of it as a charitable investment account for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations you care about.

How do I give through a donor-advised fund?

You can give in two ways:

1. Recommend a DAF grant through your financial institution or foundation

You can recommend a gift by contacting your financial institution or foundation or by granting online (find yours below).


The grant will arrive at Guiding Eyes for the Blind with only the fund’s name and address on it, unless you request otherwise.*

2. Contact your fund manager

Did you know you can recommend a one-time grant or schedule ongoing donations?


Call your fund manager and recommend supporting Guiding Eyes for the Blind, along with the amount of the grant.


Your fund manager will send a check directly to Guiding Eyes from your fund.*

*Please request that your name and address be included to inform us of your gift, so we can thank you for your generosity.

When granting through your donor-advised fund, please use the following information:
