Give from your Donor-advised Fund

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is like a charitable investment account with the purpose of supporting charities you care about, like the Food Bank. The funds can be invested for tax-free growth and you can recommend grants to your favorite IRS-qualified charities.

If you have a DAF with Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable or BNY Mellon, you can easily give using the widget here.
