Donor Advised Fund

Creating a Giving Program

With a National Charitable Endowment (“NCE”) Giving Program, you can create a charitable savings account, also known as a Donor Advised Fund, that allows you to simply and efficiently manage all aspects of your charitable giving, with real advantages in terms of tax planning.

Your NCE Giving Program is your personal charitable account, allowing you to:

  • Build your philanthropic legacy by contributing to the charitable organizations that matter most to you.

  • Claim the tax deduction in the year you contribute, while creating grants to charities on a time frame that works for you.

  • Grow your contributions tax-free by investing across asset classes, allowing you to give even more to the causes you care about.
