A donor advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program administered by a third party that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your favorite charities. DAFs allow donors to give cash, stock and other assets where the donor receives an immediate tax deduction when the contribution is made, and can easily grant specified amounts to the charities of their choice afterward.

Donors using Fidelity Charitable or Schwab Charitable: please use the convenient DAF Direct link to designate a gift directly to DC Central Kitchen.

Donors using other donor-advised fund providers (such as Vanguard): DC Central Kitchen’s Tax Identification Number (TIN) is 52-1584936. Please direct your DAF grant to be mailed to DC Central Kitchen’s deposit box. Funds sent here are deposited immediately, so we can put your donation to work right away.
