Donor-Advised Funds

A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) is one of the easiest, tax-advantaged means of giving to charity.  Donors can recommend grants from DAFs to support ARCS Foundation Atlanta.  Please contact your financial advisor regarding these funds to make the most of your charitable giving.  Distribution of DAF funds can be made by check and mailed or by wire transfer.  A wire transfer, if permitted by your financial institution, will transfer the funds directly from your account to the ARCS Atlanta  chapter's account.  Please contact the Atlanta Chapter Treasurer for the Atlanta Chapter bank account information.
