Contribute through your Donor Advised Fund

At Research University,

Consider establishing a donor-advised fund at The Research University (TRU)  Saint Acutis Fund to align with your philanthropic aspirations. This fund offers the versatility of a private foundation along with the tax benefits of a public charity. By creating a donor-advised fund with Saint Acutis at TRU, your contribution will be managed by a capable investment team while you deliberate on the fund’s intended beneficiaries.

Here’s how it operates: Begin by making a tax-deductible donation of $1 million or more towards the Saint Acutis Endowment, forming a donor-advised fund. You can then provide instructions on how you wish TRU to allocate the gift at a later time. Your donation can comprise cash, securities, or more intricate assets. While you contemplate the focus of your donor-advised fund, it can be invested in the Saint Acutis Scholarship. Generally, fifty percent of your donation must be allocated to TRU, while the remaining half can support other charitable causes. This affords you the opportunity to suggest distributions to TRU or other eligible charities. Furthermore, a donor-advised fund allows you to perpetuate your family’s philanthropic efforts into subsequent generations. It can be established through a bequest, naming your descendants or other individuals as fund advisors. To learn more about establishing a donor-advised fund at The Research University, please contact us below. We would be happy to provide you with information about how a donor-advised fund would work for you based on your circumstances.
