Donor Advised Funds

A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a flexible and effective way to simplify your charitable giving.  DAFs are the fastest-growing giving method and a tax-efficient way to manage charitable donations. DAFs enable donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time.

Grants made to Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation through a DAF can be designated for use wherever the need is greatest or aligned with specific areas that match a donor’s interests.

Clients of Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, and BNY Mellon can easily make a designation to Fidelco through the DAF Direct window on this page.  If your DAF account is with a different sponsoring organization, please contact your provider directly to make a donation.

Fidelco's tax I.D. number is 06-6060478.
