Give from your Donor Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program administered by a third party, such as a community foundation or a financial services company, that allows you to combine tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite charities. It is created for the purpose of managing charitable donations on behalf of an organization, family, or individual. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals. DAFs allow donors to give cash, stock, and other assets where the donor receives an immediate tax deduction when the contribution is made but can recommend specific amounts to the charities of their choice, such as for Marian Regional Medical Center's benefit a later time. 

To learn more about making a gift to support Marian Regional Medical Center using your DAF, please get in touch with the Marian Foundation at (805) 739-3595.

The Marian Regional Medical Center Foundation is a nonprofit corporation as provided under sections 501(c)(3) and 509(a)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions are tax-deductible in accordance with state and federal regulations.
