Donor advised funds are a simple, effective tool for making charitable donations. You simply establish the fund, then make contributions and grant recommendations at your convenience. Gifts are tax deductible at the time they are made to CREATE Foundation, even though distributions may be made in the future. Record keeping and tax reporting are consolidated for the donor by CREATE. CREATE donors have utilized their Donor Advised Funds to support their churches, public schools and universities, and countless non-profit organizations.
