Establishing a Donor-Advised Fund allows you to make a gift to the Community Foundation of Howard County, then remain involved in suggesting uses for your gift. Gifts are tax deductible at the time they are made to the Foundation even though distributions to other charitable organizations may be made over many years. You can work with our staff to suggest ongoing uses for the fund-targeting the issues you and your family care about most. Grant awards are issued to charities in the name of the fund (or anonymously if you prefer). It’s a simple, powerful, and highly personal approach to giving – and a great way to involve your entire family in philanthropy.
