Donor Advised Funds

You can give to The Animal Haven by setting up a Donor Advised Fund account (DAF), which is a simple, tax-smart investment solution for charitable giving.


You simply set up an account with a foundation, like The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven, or a financial institution that offers DAFs and then contribute cash, securities or appreciated assets to the Fund.  You will be eligible for a current-year tax deduction for all assets you contribute.  

The assets in the Fund are then invested in one or more investment pools at the foundation or financial institution and are used to make grants to U.S. public charities of your choice, including The Animal Haven.  DAFs enable you to make charitable contributions on your own timetable and to involve your family in your philanthropy.
