Donor-Advised Funds / Gifts of Stock

Donor-advised funds

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite charities. DAF Direct enables you to recommend grants to support the Leukemia Research Foundation.

Contributions through your DAF can be initiated using DAF Direct.

  • Select your DAF sponsoring organization from the dropdown menu.
  • Specify Leukemia Research Foundation in the "Designation" field.
  • Enter the donation amount you would like to recommend in the "Amount" field.
  • Click the "Next" button to proceed to the sponsoring organization's website to complete your transaction.

Please note, you will be directed to an external website to complete your transaction.

Gift of stock

An increasing number of people choose to make gifts of appreciated stock to qualified nonprofit organizations like the Leukemia Research Foundation. Such gifts may result in substantial tax benefits in the form of charitable deductions and avoidance of capital gains taxes. Your broker can assist you in making a gift of stock via a direct transfer to the Leukemia Research Foundation's account. Stock certificates can also be donated.
