The Case for Support: Why Start a Donor Advised Fund at the Coral Gables Community Foundation?

The Many Advantages of A Donor Advised Fund  

A Donor Advised Fund offers a simple and tax-efficient way to maximize the impact of your charitable giving.

It allows donors like you to create your very own charitable fund in which contributions are eligible for a tax deduction and grow tax-free, leveraging the value of your philanthropy. You have the flexibility to recommend the specific organizations you’d like to benefit from grants awarded through your fund as needs and opportunities arise.

Invitations will go out around April 20th for our Scholarship Reception, which is 5:30 pm on Tuesday, May 7th at the Newman Alumni Center on the UM Campus.

We are proud to promote a thriving, collaborative and generous vision for the community and to enhance the quality of life in Coral Gables. The Community Foundation has invested over $20 million into the community since 1991. In the past year alone, the Community Foundation – and our Fundholders – have committed more than $3 million in grants and scholarships. We welcomed Rocks of the Community and hosted our signature annual events – Tour of Kitchens, Gala and Wine Auction, enabling us to raise funds to carry on the work we do. We continue our stewardship of Donor Advised, Non-Profit, Endowment and Scholarship Funds, and take pride in assisting our donors to reach their philanthropic goals.

Your participation and support represents a sound investment in our shared community.  We urge you to experience the power and impact of creative philanthropy with us.
