Gifts from Donor-Advised Funds

During your lifetime, you can recommend a grant from your Donor-Advised Fund to impact lives through The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).

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

A DAF is a philanthropic vehicle that may provide you with an immediate income tax charitable deduction while enabling you to support the charities that are meaningful to you.

A grant from your DAF can provide hope, education, support and guidance for blood cancer patients and their families.

It’s easy for you to work with your DAF to support LLS. Simply contact your fund manager and recommend LLS along with the amount of the grant.

Please be sure to tell us about your grant so we can thank you for your generous support.

Your fund manager will need to know the following: Tax ID No. 13-5644916, 3 International Drive, Suite 200, Rye Brook, NY 10573

Create Your Legacy of Philanthropy

The final distribution of contributions remaining in your DAF after your lifetime can be designated when you create or update your fund.

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

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

Six ways you can make an impact with your DAF:

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 in minutes.

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, including your gifts to a DAF (doing so could result in an opportunity to itemize your deductions in the same year).

Leave all or a portion of your DAF to LLS simply by changing your beneficiary designation.

We hope you will consider naming The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society as a beneficiary of your account. You may even designate The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to receive a portion of the account value, leaving the remaining portion for your children or grandchildren to continue your legacy of philanthropy.
