The Gift Fund offers programs to individuals, business entities, estates and trusts that allow for a simplified approach to strategic charitable giving. The Gift Fund's Giving Account® program allows donors to establish a donor-advised fund and easily incorporate their charitable goals with their financial plan. Once a Giving Account® has been established, donors recommend grants from the Gift Fund - on their own timetable to support their favorite, IRS-qualified public charities. The Giving Account centralizes a donor's giving and provides online tools and services to make managing and planning charitable giving simple. Through the Gift Fund's investment pool program, donors have the opportunity to recommend how their charitable contributions are allocated among one or a combination of fifteen investment pools, offering a range of objectives, from preservation of principal to long-term capital growth. The charitable contributions in the professionally managed pools have the potential to grow and provide more for charity. In addition, donors whose Giving Accounts contain greater than $250,000 have the opportunity to recommend an investment advisor to manage charitable assets in their Giving Accounts as part of the Gift Funds Charitable Investment Advisor Program. The Gift Fund allows its donors the flexibility to contribute several different asset types - cash (via personal check or wire), marketable securities such as mutual funds, stocks, bonds, and assets not publicly traded. The minimum contribution to establish a Giving Account is $5,000. Donors are also able to build a meaningful charitable legacy by recommending one or a combination of the Gift Fund's three successor programs -Individuals, Charitable Organizations, or the Endowed Giving Program. While the Individual successor option lets donors pass on Giving Account privileges to family members and/or friends, the Charitable Organization and Endowed Giving Program successor options allow donors to recommend distributions directly to their favorite charities either in one lump sum or on a recurring basis after their death. Finally, the Pooled Income Fund is a program of the Gift Fund in which up to two individuals can receive a lifetime income stream, and the remainder then supports up to 10 IRS-qualified public charities. It allows donors to plan for contributing a future interest in the assets to a charity, while receiving the income generated by those assets during their lifetime to make the most of charitable dollars, both during and after their lifetime. The minimum contribution to establish a Pooled Income Fund account is $20,000.
