Catholic Charities Donor Advised Fund (CC DAF)

Support charitable organizations you care about.

The CC DAF is a dedicated charitable account that gives you a simple, flexible and tax-efficient way to support your favorite charities.

Your donation will be invested meeting the Catholic values screen established by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops investment guidelines. It has the potential to grow tax-free and generate even more money for the causes you care about, in a socially responsible way.

If you currently have funds in a DAF, but would prefer your gifts were invested in a way that meets Catholic values, we can work with you to establish and transfer the funds to the CC DAF.
