Donor Advised Funds (DAF)

What is a Donor Advised Fund (DAF)?

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes. If you have a donor advised fund, DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to Wounded Warrior Project®, directly from your DAF.

How does it work?

  1. Establish your DAF by making an irrevocable, tax deductible donation to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program.  Any investment growth is tax free.
  2. Advise the investment allocation of the donated assets.
  3. Recommend grants to the charities you support, with the option of being recognized or remain anonymous.
  4. If you are with Fidelity Charitable®, Schwab Charitable®, or BNY Mellon you can recommend a grant to Wounded Warrior Project using DAF Direct. The designation field allows you to indicate if your gift is in honor/memory of someone or if it is for general/program support. This is not a required field.
  5. If your DAF is not listed, please contact the host of your DAF directly to recommend a grant.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Wounded Warrior Project® at 904-405-1164 or keepintouch@woundedwarriorproject.org.

Thank you for your commitment and support to our nation’s injured service members!
