More Americans are leveraging donor-advised funds (DAFs) as a convenient way to help manage their charitable giving. DAFs offer you the flexibility to reach your philanthropic goals while securing the most favorable tax benefits.
Donor-advised funds can easily be set up through a community foundation or your financial institution. Once you’ve set up a DAF account, you can direct your charitable giving to the organizations and causes you care most about, like fighting climate change and supporting innovative, science-based solutions to the world’s most urgent environmental threats.
How to make your one-time or recurring DAF gift:
Option 1: Recommend a grant online using the DAF portal
Option 2: Contact your fund manager
Reach out to your DAF manager to recommend a grant of any amount to EDF.
Your DAF provider will ask for the following information:
Environmental Defense Fund
Attn: Gift Processing
257 Park Avenue South
New York, NY 10010
Federal tax ID number
Please provide your name and address on the distribution so we can thank you for your generosity and send you updates on the progress you will make possible.
Create your DAF legacy
You can also create a lasting legacy by naming Environmental Defense Fund as a partial or full beneficiary of your donor-advised fund. Contact your fund administrator for a beneficiary form.
