DAF Direct

An Effective Way to Give

A Donor Advised Fund (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.

Clients of Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, and BNY Mellon can easily make a designation through the DAF Direct window below. Simply go through the usual grant making process at your institution. Search for Samaritans, Inc by our EIN# 04-2643466. To ensure that the donation is posted to the correct campaign, be sure to list where or who your donation should be credited to by filling in the designation field.
