Tools beyond the donor advised fund
Charitable Remainder Trusts
A donor may list their donor advised fund as the beneficiary of their charitable remainder trust (CRT) to support more charities, increase flexibility and control, and potentially reduce future expenses. By designating a DAF at The Signatry as the trust’s beneficiary, donors and their families have the ability to support multiple charities and modify the charitable giving plan easily.
Corporate Benevolence Program
A corporate benevolence program is a fund a company creates with The Signatry to assist employees in times of need through the use of a donor advised fund. It can be used to help employees who may be victims of natural disasters, national emergencies, financial hardships, or other crises. The program is often employee-funded through voluntary payroll deductions. This allows companies to take care of and provide security to employees in time of unusual need.
To learn more about setting up the program for your company’s needs, contact the Donor Care team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 913.310.0279
Grants from a designated fund can only be sent to a single charity, specified whenever the fund is opened. Designated funds qualify for receiving required minimum distributions from an IRA account, while donor advised funds do not qualify. Designated funds also guarantee that all grants will only be sent to whichever charity is designated on the fund.
A life insurance policy may be donated to The Signatry to maximize charitable impact through a donor advised fund (DAF). Donors may receive a charitable deduction by gifting the life insurance policy to The Signatry and listing the DAF as the beneficiary of policy.
A supporting organization is a specific type of public charity that carries out its tax-exempt purpose by supporting other public charities. This allows you, your family, or your business to manage grant-making to charitable organizations. By creating a supporting organization with the help of The Signatry, you will receive administrative help, grants management support, and investment management support. A supporting organization can cover operating expenses and offer full-time employment with benefits. Through The Signatry, you can combine a supporting organization with a donor advised fund for anonymous granting and additional grant support.
