Donor Advised Funds

Donor Advised Funds are the fastest-growing giving method and tax-efficient way to manage charitable donations. Donor Advised Funds allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time. 

UNICEF USA is proud to be a resource and partner to several of the United States’ largest Donor Advised Fund sponsor organizations and their philanthropic services teams. We are well-versed in the mechanics of Donor Advised Fund giving and the applicable IRS regulations.

Grants made to UNICEF USA through Donor Advised Funds can be designated for UNICEF to use wherever the need is greatest or aligned with thematic areas that match our supporters’ interest, such as maternal and newborn health, nutrition, education, immunization, or emergency response.

Clients of Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, and BNY Mellon can easily make a designation through the DAF Direct window on this page.

For more information, please contact Kristen M. Jones at (415) 549-0937 or connect with a UNICEF USA staff member at your nearest regional office.
