Grantmaking from your Donor-Advised Fund

How to be strategic with your giving

Once you have opened your donor-advised fund, it is a simple, easy process to make grant and start making an impact!

Step 1: Determine what inspires you, what you are passionate about, and what impact you want to make.

       •  We are happy to meet with you to review your past giving, identify your interest areas, define your values, create a mission statement and help you make strategic decisions about your charitable giving.

 

Step 2: Utilize our philanthropic resources.

       •  Make a phone call to schedule an appointment with one of our Donor Services team to learn about exciting programs in the community.
   • Review information on several “pre-approved” nonprofit requests by checking out the Giving Guide.
   • Go to www.NorthTexasGivingDay.org and look up thousands of nonprofit organizations, review mission statements, current agency needs and more to see what meets your goals.

Step 3: Make a grant and change a life - yours!

       • Log on to our Donor Portal and search for the recipient, enter the amount of your grant, and submit.
