DONOR ADVISED FUND OR FIELD OF INTEREST FUND

We Make Giving Easy

Some donors prefer to use Texas Women’s Foundation as their “charitable checkbook.” Creating a Donor Advised Fund allows you to earn immediate tax benefits, and then use the Fund to support causes you care about most.

Drawing on our 33-year history of working to improve the lives of women, girls and families through economic security and leadership opportunities, we help donors define and realize their own unique philanthropic visions. We also suggest funding recommendations tailored to each donor’s personal interests.

We offer donors our expertise in managing over 50 other funds and more that $35 million in assets. In addition, we provide a trusted knowledge resource through our statewide research and advocacy work, as well as our streamlined model for investment in cost-effective, efficient and impactful grantmaking.

Benefits of Opening Your Fund with Texas Women’s Foundation

  • Simple, cost-effective and flexible: You give to causes you care about. We manage your investment and records easing your administrative burdens and costs.
  • Fewer taxes: You get immediate tax benefits, even if you wait to make grants from the fund.
  • Online access and convenience: You can manage all your giving in one place, making it easier to support the causes close to your heart.
  • Personalized service: Our team of knowledgeable and experienced grantmakers can also help you define your philanthropic goals, connect you with impactful nonprofits that align with your charitable interests, and perform due diligence for you.
  • Option of anonymity: You have the option to grant anonymously to protect your privacy.

GIVING CIRCLES

Texas Women’s Foundation hosts and supports several Giving Circles, which are groups that have come together through a shared experience, culture or interest. The Giving Circles raise money each year, and focus their support on organizations that serve or address their specific area of experience, culture or interest.  All Giving Circles at Texas Women’s Foundation are aligned with our core mission and values of advancing the economic security and leadership opportunities for women, girls and families.

Texas Women’s Foundation is honored to host and support three Giving Circles that are empowering their members to combine resources to award impactful grants to effective organizations. Since 2016, the Giving Circles have awarded over $500,000 to community organizations in North Texas.
