Donor Advised Funds are a great way to simplify your charitable giving. These funds are an excellent record keeping and tax planning tool. No professional fee is charged on Donor Advised Funds unless you choose an investment option for your fund.
There has never been a better time to open a donor advised fund at the Lincoln Community Foundation. Thanks to a gift from Bill and Marilyn Cintani, for a limited time new DAFs will receive a 10% match. More info...
**NOTE** Those who have a donor advised fund at Lincoln Community Foundation may avoid all fees by recommending grants to participating nonprofits. When using a donor advised fund, there is a minimum $100 grant per nonprofit. New funds must be opened within 10 days prior to the event. Grant recommendations can be created through the My LCF Login at www.lcf.org, and are encouraged to be made by within 5 days prior to the event.
