Donor-Advised Funds

Ren’s most popular service for individuals is the set up and management of donor-advised funds, which allow for the transfer of assets to a public charity for the purpose of charitable giving.

Donor-advised funds help charitably minded individuals reduce estate taxes and capital gains taxes on appreciated assets. 

A donor can recommend a wide range of investment options to their financial advisor for the assets of their donor-advised fund account.

Donor-advised funds are a wonderful tool for establishing a legacy of giving. Heirs and loved ones can be part of the process of distributing grants to charity and can even be named successor grant advisors so the donor-advised fund can last for generations.
