Donor Advised Funds

Donor-Advised Funds, or DAF, is like a charitable investment account for the sole purpose of supporting charitable organizations you care about. When you contribute cash, securities, or other assets to a donor-advised fund at a public charity, like Fidelity Charitable, Charles Schwab or BNY Mellon, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction. Then those funds can be invested for tax-free growth, and you can recommend grants to any eligible IRS-qualified public charity.

Vertex Partnership Academies, Inc, is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization classified as a charity that is able to accept philanthropic contributions. Upon receipt of your gift, you will receive a 501(c)(3) donation letter for tax purposes.
