Enjoy no-fee investing through 2023 when you transfer your DAF to Charityvest.

Why Transfer Your DAF

Many donors create a Charityvest fund to try out our experience and ultimately decide to move some or all of their existing donor-advised fund assets to us. Reasons we've heard include:
We would be honored to accept a transfer of some or all of your existing donor-advised fund assets from another donor-advised fund sponsor.

We believe Charityvest is the best place for you to grow your donor-advised fund. 🌱
When you transfer more than $1000 from your existing DAF to Charityvest, you will receive the full power of Charityvest (with investments), for no fees, through the end of 2023.

    Sign up for a free account with Charityvest if you haven't already.
  2. 2.
    Make a grant recommendation from your existing DAF to Charityvest, Inc. (EIN: 81-2771871) for the amount you wish to transfer, up to your full balance. In the grant notes, please include the email address associated with your Charityvest account. We'll use this to assign your transfer to the correct Charityvest account.

Tax Considerations for DAF Transfers

DAF transfers are not new charitable contributions, and are therefore not considered tax-deductible. When we process your DAF transfer, we will automatically mark it as not tax-deductible and it will not appear on your year-end tax statement.
