Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)

A donor-advised fund (DAF) allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support RAM and other public charities through cash, appreciated securities, and other assets. DAFs allow you to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from your DAF account over time to the nonprofits you wish to support.

Non-cash Assets

Donating certain non-cash assets like real estate, life insurance, art, and other tangible personal property, can provide significant tax benefits while advancing RAM’s mission.
