Advised Funds


Donor-advised funds (DAF) provide you with a simple, flexible, and tax-efficient giving opportunity.

Why Donor-Advised Funds?

Receive an immediate tax deduction when you deposit cash or proceeds from appreciated assets into a single charitable giving account. Then, recommend grants be made to Mission India and your other favorite charities at a time that works best for you.

Timing. Receive an immediate tax deduction at the time you make a gift into your donor advise fund. Then, advise how and when you wish your gifts to be distributed to Mission India and other ministries close to your heart.

Flexibility. You may choose to give in one-time or recurring increments, and you may choose to designate your gift to specifically benefit our Church Planting, Adult Literacy or Children’s Bible Club programs.

Simplicity. Simplify your giving and record-keeping by making all gifts of cash, stocks, or appreciated assets from a single account.

Privacy. You can choose to make any or all grants to your charities anonymously.
Expertise. Benefit from the knowledge and expertise of staff who will manage and liquidate your non-cash asset gifts for you.

Cost-effective. Many families choose to use their donor advised fund as a cost-effective alternative to establishing a private foundation.

*Through Mission India’s membership with Barnabas Foundation and National Christian Foundation, you have complimentary access to donor-advised funds that reflects your biblical values and allow you to join tens of thousands of givers around the world in an unprecedented movement of Christian generosity.
