Gifts from Donor-Advised Funds - Alpha Chi Omega Foundation

Gifts From Donor-Advised Funds

During your lifetime, you can recommend a grant from your donor-advised fund (DAF) to impact real, strong women through the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation. Gifts from your DAF will be counted as a soft credit in Foundation annual and cumulative giving recognition.

You may even designate Alpha Chi Omega to receive a portion of the account value, leaving the remaining portion for your children or grandchildren to continue your legacy of philanthropy.

If you would like to make a gift now through your DAF, simply click the link below to find your fund:

Create A Lifetime Impact

The final distribution of contributions remaining in your DAF after your lifetime can be designated when you create or update your fund. Designating the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation as the residual beneficiary of your DAF is an important way to ensure that your charitable giving priorities are honored even after you are gone.

If you decide to change your beneficiary designation to the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation, would you let us know? We would like to recognize you for your generosity and ensure your gift is used as you intend.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about setting up your beneficiary gift or if you need more information.

I invite you to contact the Foundation team so we can chat about easy ways to make an impact using your donor-advised fund.

Six ways you can make an impact with your donor-advised fund

Memorialize, honor or commemorate a loved one or an event.


Avoid capital gains by first transferring appreciated stock to your DAF and then gifting it.


Teach your loved ones about charity and why you believe in giving back.

Build a sense of community (and make a bigger impact) by forming “giving circles” with other donor-advised fund owners including friends and family members.

Bundle your charitable gifts (doing so could result in an opportunity to itemize your deductions in the same year).

Leave all or a portion of your account to charity simply by changing your beneficiary designation.
