Every Gift Makes a Vital Difference.

Immediate tax deductions and tax-free growth on the contribution are often key benefits for those making gifts through a donor advised fund. DAF Direct enables donors to recommend grants to Vanderbilt University, directly from the DAF (as long as the DAF’s sponsoring organization is participating).
