VisionSpring is a global social enterprise creating access to affordable eyewear everywhere. We are not your traditional non-profit, we sell radically affordable eyeglasses to people earning less than $4 per day. For our customers that means they cost about one day’s wages. But what the customer can afford, doesn’t cover all of VisionSpring’s costs. This is where your tax-deductible donations come in. For every $5 you donate, we can deliver one pair of eyeglasses! Thank you!
What Is a DAF?
An Effective Way to Give
A DAF is a centralized vehicle for charitable giving that makes it easy for donors to dedicate funds to support their favorite nonprofit organization. It also provides an operationally convenient and tax-efficient method for donors to manage their charitable giving.
With a DAF, charitably inclined individuals, families, and businesses make an irrevocable gift to a public charity that sponsors a donor-advised fund program, and may take an immediate tax deduction. Donors can then recommend grants over time to IRS-qualified 501(c)(3) public charities. DAFs also allow donors to approach their charitable giving thoughtfully by involving other family members or colleagues in their philanthropic decisions. Most DAFs accept donations of long-term appreciated securities and other assets, and donors can advise how the funds are invested, which could potentially allow tax-free growth, and could result in more money for your charity.
