Donor Advised Funds

Harness the giving power of a private foundation—without the complexity

A donor advised fund, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to Feeding America and other qualified charities. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now to make an immediate impact or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts.

You can also create a lasting legacy by naming Feeding America the beneficiary of the entire account or a percentage of the fund. With a percentage, you can create a family legacy of giving by naming your loved ones as your successor to continue recommending grants to charitable organizations. Contact your fund administrator for a beneficiary form.
