Donor-Advised Funds

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.

For more information, please contact Amanda Fitzgerald, Director of Development at (336) 721-7600.

Contributing appreciated securities offers significant tax advantages. If you have owned the shares for more than one year, you may deduct their full fair market value as a charitable contribution and bypass capital gains taxes. Please contact your financial advisor for more information regarding the benefits of transferring securities to Crossnore School & Children’s Home.

For transfer instructions, please contact Caroline Hart, Chief Advancement Officer at (828) 733-4305.
