United Way provides valuable services to support your philanthropic goals, long-term wealth management strategies and non-profit commitments. Opening a Donor Advised Fund with United Way is a convenient way for you to make a lasting investment in the Greater Rochester community.
What is a Donor Advised Fund? Donor Advised Funds make community-wide philanthropy efficient and impactful. Donors advise United Way on distributions from their fund, utilizing a flexible and convenient way to invest in causes they support.
An individual, couple, family or group may create a Donor Advised Fund by making an initial gift of cash, marketable securities or other assets to United Way. Distributions can be to any domestic charity eligible to receive contributions under the Internal Revenue Code. United Way will help you manage your fund online, by phone or by mail.
