Donor-advised funds are a fast-growing vehicle for personal philanthropy. The DAF is a charitable account, sponsored by a public charity, that donors use to support their philanthropy.
We are collaborating with Fidelity Charitable and the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation to offer the DAF Direct widget, making it quick and convenient for donors to give through DAFs. A donor who wants to make a donation with their DAF may use the widget by choosing the appropriate donor-advised fund sponsor and providing the gift amount. They are then automatically routed to the UCM Foundation's website to complete their donation.
Donors who use this widget cannot designate a gift to athletics or receive any incidental benefits, such as all or part of the cost of tickets to attend a charitable event, raffle tickets and goods or services bought at a charitable auction.
