A donor-advised fund receives donations from donors who make their tax-deductible donations at a public charity fund such as Fidelity Charitable, BNY Mellon Charitable Gift Fund, or Schwab Charitable. As the donor-advised fund grows, the donor can then recommend grants to any IRS-qualified public charity. If you have a donor-advised fund at Fidelity, BNY Mellon, or Schwab, you can easily use the widget to the right to recommend a grant be given to Crossnore School & Children’s Home.
To make a gift through another charitable investment account, such as The Winston-Salem Foundation or Foundation for the Carolinas, please contact your fund administrator directly.
