By creating a donor-advised fund, you can organize all of your charitable activities through one expertly managed, cost-effective charitable vehicle. Your gift qualifies for an immediate tax deduction, and you can take your time deciding which organizations to recommend for grants. You’ll receive expert advice from SDSCF that will provide you with in-depth knowledge to help you set goals, develop your charitable giving strategy and administer grants. You can name your donor-advised fund.

 Endowed funds are a way for you to support your favorite charities or causes forever, creating a lasting legacy. This allows you to participate in helping SDSCF in our work to elevate the lives of older adults, ensuring every senior has someone they can turn to and trust. SDSCF makes grants to the most effective local nonprofit organizations in the names of citizens who have established named endowment funds with us. The income earned from named endowed funds provides the venture capital for long-term solutions that challenge our older adults.
