Donor Advised Fund (DAF)

A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a simple, flexible and
tax-advantaged way you can make charitable donations, so you make the biggest impact.  You can quickly and easily designate a grant from your DAF to the Oblate Missionary Society, Inc. (our legal title) through your financial institution’s website (such as Fidelity or Schwab Charitable).  You can also locate our organization by using our
Tax ID #26-0634043 .

A donor-advised fund is like a charitable investment account, for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations that help people in need, like the Oblate Missionary Society.

Tax ID:


When you contribute cash, securities or other assets to a donor-advised fund at a public charity, like Fidelity or Schwab Charitable,  you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction.  Then those funds can be invested for tax-free growth and you can recommend grants to an IRS-qualified public charity.

Donor-advised funds are very popular and are the fastest growing charitable giving vehicle in the United States because they are one of the easiest and most tax-advantageous ways to give to charity.

If you have any questions about how to give from your Donor Advised Fund, to help people in need, please contact the Office of Charitable and Planned Giving at 1-800-233-6264.  You can also email charitablegifts@oblatesusa.org.
