COMPLEX ASSET DONATIONS
Giving of non-cash assets can be a powerful tool in any planned giving strategy and can increase the impact of your client’s philanthropy. CAF America is well-equipped to help you transform these assets into meaningful philanthropy. By donating these assets to a donor advised fund, your client can benefit from increased flexibility in their giving.

GRANT TO A FOREIGN CHARITY FROM AN EXISTING DAF
Does your client have an existing DAF at a separate sponsoring organization? They can advise grants to any charity around the world using our Donor Advised Gift option, without needing to pay additional fees for due diligence. Check with your sponsoring organization or get in touch with us to see if we already have a relationship with your DAF – you may be eligible for lower fees.
Any Fund at CAF America can be invested to maximize the impact of our donors’ charitable contributions. We allow donors to choose from a number of vetted investment portfolios, and we offer the option to restrict an investment policy to specifically ESG-aligned assets.
