Gifts from Donor Advised Funds
You can open a Heifer Foundation Donor Advised Fund or create a grant recommendation from your existing donor advised fund to support Heifer Foundation/Heifer International.
Final distribution of contributions in a Donor Advised Fund is governed by the contract you completed when you created your fund. We hope you will consider naming Heifer Foundation or Heifer International as a “successor” of your account. Or, you can name Heifer Foundation or Heifer International as the successor for a portion of the account value, leaving the remaining portion for your heirs.
As with all gift planning, you should consult with your tax advisor and lawyer to determine what planned gift strategy is best for your current tax situation and income requirements. Consulting estate-planning professionals will help ensure that your wishes to make a lasting impact will be fulfilled.
