A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) is a charitable giving account established by an individual, family, or organization through a qualified sponsoring organization. Donors contribute to the fund, typically receiving an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund to qualified charitable organizations like AFEDJ over time. Contributions made from your DAF can be sent via wire or ACH transfer or via a mailed check.

DAFs offer a strategic and flexible approach to philanthropy, allowing you to centralize your charitable giving, receive tax benefits, and make informed decisions about when and where to distribute funds to support causes that you care about.

Give from your DAF by clicking the button below:

Contributing through a DAF is a quick and straightforward process, offering you the ability to make a gift that provides an immediate tax deduction while giving you full control over how the funds are invested.

If you are a financial advisor suggesting DAF grants on behalf of AFEDJ, please work with your specific financial institutions or connect with us directly by email Sarah Schofield-Mansur (sarah@afedj.org). Your partnership ensures a seamless process in channeling support towards our mission in the Holy Land.

AFEDJ’s Tax ID/EIN is 59-6155008

Planned Giving

AFEDJ is deeply appreciative of support through financial and estate plans, ensuring the enduring impact of the diocese’s humanitarian efforts in the Holy Land. Planned gifts to AFEDJ play a vital role in sustaining the diocese’s long-term initiatives in education, healthcare, and community development, allowing us to collectively achieve positive change for years to come. A planned gift to AFEDJ provides you with control over your assets during your lifetime, while also offering potential tax benefits for your loved ones in the future. There are diverse options for making a planned gift, ranging from including AFEDJ in your will to creating a customized plan that aligns with your current financial situation.

This information is designed to offer a broad understanding of your potential planned giving choices; AFEDJ is not authorized to provide tax or legal advice. We are happy to collaborate with you and/or your legal or financial advisors to establish an arrangement that best aligns with your vision.

The next time you review your estate plan or your will, please consider making a bequest to AFEDJ. And please let us know about your charitable bequest, so we can welcome you into the Jerusalem Saints Society. Here is a helpful resource when you are writing or updating your will.

To learn more about planned giving, please contact AFEDJ Executive Director Eileen Spencer (espencer@afedj.org or 914.924.9704).
