What is a donor-advised fund?

A donor-advised fund is a fund that is maintained and operated by a section 501(c)(3) organization, which is called a sponsoring organization. Each account is funded by an individual donor who receives an immediate tax deduction for his or her contribution. While the organization has legal control over the contribution, the donor can make grant recommendations to support his or her favorite charities and advise how the account assets are invested.
