As a 501(c)(3) charity, Direct Relief is qualified to receive grants from donor advised funds (DAFs). At the time you contribute to your DAF you receive any available tax benefits for the tax year to which the contribution applies. You can donate from your donor advised fund to Direct Relief by recommending a grant through your fund administrator. Direct Relief offers free access to online forms from Giving Docs to help you give from your DAF.

Is it time to update the beneficiaries on your donor advised fund?
