Donor Advised Funds (DAF)

By recommending a gift from your Donor Advised Fund (DAF), you are helping the International Festival of Arts & Ideas celebrate great art, great ideas, and great community all year. 

How do I give? If you already have a Donor Advised Fund, giving is easy! You can: 

1. Recommend a DAF through your financial institution or foundation by contacting them or making a recommendation online. The grant will arrive at the International Festival of Arts & Ideas with only the fund’s name and address on it unless you request otherwise.* 

2. Contact your fund manager. Call your fund manager and recommend a charity that you would like to support, such as the International Festival of Arts & Ideas, and how much the grant should be. The fund manager will send a check directly to us, or another charity you name, from your fund.* 

* Please request that your name and contact information be included in the correspondence so that we can recognize you for your generosity. You can also call us directly at (203) 498-1212 and inform us of your gift.
