Some of our donors have established a donor-advised charitable fund (Fidelity Charitable®, Vanguard Charitable®, Schwab Charitable®, or other) and have a strong desire to support the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation through an annual gift and a legacy gift. You can direct that your donor-advised charitable fund be distributed, in full, to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation after your lifetime. Or, you can name specific charities and choose a dollar or percentage amount to be distributed over a certain time, or until the account balance becomes zero.
When making a gift through a donor-advised fund, please consult with your donor-advised fund sponsoring organization and tax and/or legal advisor on their proper use. The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation cannot provide tax or legal advice. Donor-advised funds cannot be used to cover the cost of any portion of an auction purchase and may not be used for any portion of the cost of attendance. Donor-advised funds may only be used for sponsorships for events if the cost of attendance is fully covered by other funds or the sponsorship is fully tax deductible. Please work with your individual donor-advised fund to recommend general grants to support events.
