Donor-Advised Funds (DAF)

Donor-Advised Funds (DAF) are a convenient way to simplify your charitable giving to California State Parks Foundation.

DAFs are the fastest-growing giving method and a tax-efficient way to manage your charitable donations. They allow donors to make a contribution and receive an immediate tax deduction.

Your thoughtful gift allows California State Parks Foundation to continue to protect and preserve the California state park system, for the benefit of all.

How to use the DAF Direct Widget

The DAF Direct Widget makes it easy for you to give through your Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable or BNY Mellon Charitable account.

After you select the institution that manages your donor-advised fund, simply enter the dollar amount you want to donate to California State Parks Foundation and click “next.” You will then be directed to an external website to complete your gift.

We will be notified of your generous donation after the DAF institution sends us your contribution.

If you don’t already have a DAF, contact your financial advisor to learn how to set up a donor-advised fund.
