New Donor-Advised Fund

Knights of Columbus Charitable Fund (KCCF), in collaboration with the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA (AMS), launched the first-ever KCCF diocesan private-label donor-advised fund (DAF). The link to the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA donor-advised fund is: AMS-DAF

A donor-advised fund is a philanthropic vehicle established at a public charity. It allows donors to make a charitable contribution, and potentially receive an immediate tax benefit when they establish and contribute to a donor-advised fund and then recommend grants from the fund over time.

Under the partnership with AMS, donors will be able to make gifts that may be eligible for a tax deduction on a flexible timetable through the AMS private-label donor-advised fund to other qualifying organizations.  To learn more, read the full news release.

Archbishop Broglio expressed his appreciation for being the first archdiocese to partner with the Knights of Columbus Charitable Fund in its new private-label donor advised fund initiative. Archbishop Broglio said, “The new AMS Donor Advised Fund will provide an important new philanthropic giving vehicle to benefit the global mission and ministry of this Archdiocese, and other organizations whose missions are in line with Catholic teachings. I am deeply grateful to the Knights, who have been a steadfast supporter of the AMS for many years, for introducing yet another way for the faithful to support pastoral care for the Catholic men and women who serve our nation in uniform, and their families.”
