|Donor-Advised Funds and Stock Donations|
A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your favorite charities. DAFs are a great way to simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.
If you currently have a donor-advised fund through Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, BNY Mellon Charitable or Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, you may use DAFDirect.
Do you have a donor-advised fund?
Recommend a gift to the Association of Women Surgeons Foundation (AWSF) through your donor-advised fund. If you currently have a donor-advised fund through Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, BNY Mellon Charitable or Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, use DAFDirect on this page. Simply fill in the institution, the designation (how the funds should be used), and the amount of the gift. When you click "Next", you will be directed to your donor advised fund provider. If your donor advised fund provider is not listed, contact your provider directly with a request to make a grant to the AWSF.
Interested in establishing a donor-advised fund?
If you haven't set-up a donor advised account, consider establishing one and contact your financial advisor to learn more. You can focus your giving to support AWSF opportunities for the educational and professional growth of women in surgery.
