Donor-advised Fund

Further Your Impact

Giving a gift to Cousteau Society from your DAF is not only convenient and easy for you, but it makes an undeniable impact on our work. Your gift will allow us to advocate worldwide for environmentally beneficial legislation and to promote ocean research that will protect countless species from the ravages of global warming.

A few things to know:

  • You can use your DAF to make a one-time or a recurring gift.
  • You will receive an acknowledgment for your gift, but not a charitable receipt for tax purposes. This is because it is your contribution to your donor-advised fund that is tax-deductible, not your distribution to the Cousteau Society.

WHAT IS A donor-advised fund (DAF)

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving fund administered by a third party such as a community foundation or financial institution. DAFs allow you to make a charitable contribution of cash, securities, or other assets to the fund, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from your DAF account over time to the nonprofits you wish to support.
