Donor Advised Funds

Donating through DAF Direct

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 support your favorite charities. DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to Help Heal Veterans.

Contributions through your DAF can be initiated using the DAF Direct widget to the right.

  • Select your DAF sponsoring organization from the dropdown menu labeled “Donate now from:”.
  • Specify Help Heal Veterans in the “Designation:” field.
  • Enter your donation amount you would like to recommend in the “Amount:” field.
  • Click on the “NEXT” button to proceed to the sponsoring organization’s website to complete your donor advised fund transaction. Please note, you will be directed to an external website to complete your transaction.

If your DAF sponsor organization is not available through DAF Direct, simply contact the organization to initiate your donation.
