Consider recommending the Center on Policy Initiatives as an organization to support through your donor advised fund.
What is a donor advised fund?
A donor advised fund (DAF) is like a charitable savings account that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support CPI and other 501(c)(3) organizations through cash, appreciated securities and other assets. A donor creates an account and makes a contribution of cash, stock, or other assets like real estate or artwork and can take an immediate tax deduction for the gift. The accounts are managed by a nonprofit, called a sponsoring organization, that invests the assets and manages the donor’s account. Community foundations often serve as sponsoring organizations and so do nonprofit arms of financial-services firms, such as Vanguard Charitable and Schwab Charitable. Once a fund is established, donors tell the sponsoring organization which nonprofits they’d like to donate to from their accounts.
Donating your vehicle (running or not) is a free and easy way to support CPI. CPI is partnering with CARS to accept motorized vehicle donations of all kinds including cars, trucks, trailers, boats, RVs, motorcycles, campers, off-road vehicles, planes, heavy equipment, and farm machinery.
