A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program managed by a nonprofit institution (known as sponsoring organization) and created to manage charitable gifts on behalf of donors.


What Are the Advantages of a Donor-Advised Fund?

  • Your gifts to your donor-advised fund entitle you to an immediate income tax deduction at the time of contribution.
  • You avoid capital gains tax on appreciated assets you place in your donor-advised fund.
    Your fund’s investment gains accumulate tax-free.
  • Funds are distributed to Aragon High School PTSO in your name to support the PTSO Programs to benefit the students.

How Does It Work?

  • You contribute assets such as cash, stocks, or bonds to a donor-advised fund established in your name and managed by a sponsoring organization.
  • The sponsoring organization reinvests your gift as you direct.
  • The sponsoring organization distributes your fund to charities you recommend, such as Aragon High School PTSO.
