UNICEF USA Donor-Advised Funds

Donor-Advised Funds

Donor-Advised Funds (DAF) are a 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 partners with some of the largest DAF sponsor organizations and their philanthropic services teams in the United States. 

Grants made to UNICEF USA through Donor-Advised Funds can be designated in one of two ways:

  • for UNICEF to use wherever the need is greatest
  • for UNICEF to use for a specific thematic area that matches the donors' interests, such as education, emergency response, health, nutrition or child protection

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

UNICEF USA's tax I.D. number is 13-1760110.
