Make sure the organization you select is one that supports your values. 2] Understand the fund's policies and procedures— Minimum contributions, as well as the amount and frequency of grant recommendations, all vary depending upon the sponsoring organization. 3] Consider costs and investment—All donor-advised funds charge administrative fees that can vary considerably. In addition, investment performance will vary from one donor-advised fund to the next, affecting the amount that will actually be distributable to a charitable organization. 3 Tips for Choosing Where to Set Up Your Fund
