  • National Commercial Sponsors – Financial products and services, for profit motive
  • Single-issue Charities –The charity’s mission
  • iGiftFund – The donor’s philanthropic interests

+ TAX BENEFITS >>

Tax laws for donor advised funds require that you relinquish ownership and control over contributed assets. However, as a donor advisor, you retain the privilege to advise iGiftFund on: how your fund is named, how the funds are invested, how the funds are granted, and how your fund will carry on after your death. “Advising,” in contrast to “directing,” is the key to your receiving superior tax benefits.
