The Pennsylvania State University Charitable Gift Fund (PSUCGF)

Donor Advised Fund


Charitable giving yields lasting emotional returns. But when and how you give, and to which organizations, are major decisions that require careful thought. Managing your charitable giving—maximizing its philanthropic impact and tax benefits, in particular—can become more complicated the more you wish to give. A Donor Advised Fund at Penn State offers a simplified and mutually beneficial approach to building your philanthropic legacy.
