Charitable Giving Fund Management

A donor advised fund benefits the community and your credit union.

If your credit union is considering its own foundation, a Donor Advised Fund offers significant benefits and is an excellent way to carry out your charitable wishes. A Carolinas Credit Union Foundation Donor Advised Fund gives your credit union the flexibility of its own foundation without the task of starting and managing a private foundation.

A Carolinas Credit Union Foundation Donor Advised Fund offers many of the advantages of a private foundation without the initial set-up costs, ongoing excise taxes, and administrative expenses. By working with the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation, your credit union will avoid the continued compliance and reporting requirements as well as a separate accounting system to track your nonprofit’s financials.

With a Donor Advised Fund you can simplify and improve your credit union’s charitable giving because donors including both individuals and organizations) can leverage the tax deductibility of donations.
