Donor Advised Fund (DAF) 

A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a philanthropic account that enables donors to contribute funds, receive a tax deduction, and suggest charitable donations from the fund to their preferred 501c3 public charity over time. If you have a DAF, you can recommend grants to Three Valleys Community Foundation. 

  1. Select Three Valleys Community Foundation as your DAF transfer recipient / grantee. 
  2. Input donation amount.
  3. Designate a purpose –  ‘Where the Need is Greatest’.

Opening a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) through 3VCF presents an opportunity for you, the donor, to amplify your charitable impact in our Tri-Valley community. As a 501c3 nonprofit, Three Valleys provides an immediate tax deduction via our organization and recommends gifts over an extended period of time. As a fundholder, you then have the opportunity to recommend ‘secondary’ allocations to nonprofits of your choice, either immediately or over time. DAFs are ideal opportunities for individuals who may want to make an immediate charitable contribution, but may not know all of the eventual intended recipients. Three Valleys can help provide a ‘concierge’ approach, working with your specific interests and focus areas to ensure alignment. Gifts can be earmarked in advance over a period of time. Both endowed and non-endowed DAF options are available, with a variety of investment options to help your corpus grow.

3VCF has identified a number of well-qualified investment pools to select from, allowing our donors to align their financial goals, risk tolerance, and planned charitable giving. Three Valleys can also work with you or your financial advisor to accept stocks, fund transfers or even complex gifts like real estate to open up a DAF. We encourage you to reach out to Kelly Bowers at for further information and to explore DAF options. We’re happy to talk it through with you!Employer Matching

Many companies match employee and retiree donations, increasing the impact of your gift. As a tax-exempt 501c3 organization, Three Valleys Community Foundation qualifies for matching gifts. Contact your Human Resources department to see if your employer participates. Thank you for considering a matching gift to amplify your generosity.
