By Donor Advised Fund

A donor advised fund is a specific kind of giving vehicle that is administered through a third party public charity like Fidelity or Schwab Charitable. Locally, many individuals have established donor advised funds through the Seattle Foundation.

You may contribute to your fund as frequently as you wish, receiving an immediate tax benefit, and recommend giving to your favorite charity when you are ready. Please note however, that the initial giving into your donor advised fund is your tax deductible transaction and as such, you will receive an acknowledgement not a receipt from the Center.

Recommend a gift to the Center for Infectious Disease Research now through your donor advised fund using DAF Direct. Simply enter the amount you wish to give, click next, and complete your submission.
