What is a donor advised fund?

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a smart gift planning tool used by a growing number of donors to pre-fund multiple years of charitable giving. Concentrating multiple years of giving into one year allows you to itemize deductions and save income taxes while continuing to support Adventure Unlimited on a consistent basis.

Why use a donor advised fund?

The 2017 Tax Act doubled the standard deduction from $12,000 to $24,000 for married couples. As a result, many taxpayers are no longer able to itemize deductions such as charitable gifts. A DAF allows donors to keep receiving tax benefits for their giving by alternating between claiming the larger standard deduction and itemizing deductions when they replenish their DAF. They use their DAF for most or all of their charitable giving, making grants from their DAF to favorite charities like Adventure Unlimited.

How to make a gift with a donor advised fund

You can recommend a gift to Adventure Unlimited through your DAF in two ways:

1. If you don’t already have a DAF account, contact your financial advisor or establish one directly with a financial institution or community foundation that offers DAFs.

2. If you have a DAF, contact your DAF administer and recommend a grant to Adventure Unlimited using the following information:
TAX ID: 43-0798771
Adventure Unlimited
5201 S. Quebec Street
Greenwood Village, CO 80111


NOTE: Your DAF grant will arrive at Adventure Unlimited with only the DAF’s name and address on it unless you request otherwise, so please ask for your name and address to be included. To allow us to thank you for your generosity, please also contact Adventure Unlimited at [email protected] to inform us of your gift.
