"Using a donor advised fund is a very tax efficient method of making charitable contributions, and the Catholic Foundation of Northeast Kansas is my choice of foundations to administer my donor advised fund.  I prefer to use the Catholic Foundation (CFNEK) for my donor advised fund because it is so easy to use and has a direct connection with my parish and all of the other charities that are affiliated with our archdiocese.  Transfers can be completed quickly with no paperwork lag time that may be experienced with other foundations that are not "Catholic" based.  Maintaining a donor advised fund at the CFNEK is another way to support your parish and your church.   Establishing a donor advised fund at CFNEK upon your death is also a great way to pass on the "habit" of charitable giving to the next generation.   You can make contributions to the fund during your lifetime and/or at death and let your children pick the specific charities that will benefit from the fund after you have passed.   It is a great way to share with your children the joy of giving."
