Donor Advised Funds

Give through your Donor Advised Fund (DAF) HERE.

What is a DAF?

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized vehicle for charitable giving that makes it easy for donors to dedicate funds to support their favorite nonprofit organization. It also provides an operationally convenient and tax-efficient method for donors to manage their charitable giving.

With a DAF, charitably inclined individuals, families, and businesses make an irrevocable gift to a public charity that sponsors a donor-advised fund program and may take an immediate tax deduction.

Gifts of Stock


Appreciated publicly-traded securities offer a desirable way to make a contribution and avoid taxes. Making a gift of securities is simple and generally offers a number of valuable financial benefits:

  • You can donate appreciated stocks or bonds
  • The total value of the stock upon transfer may be tax-deductible


If you wish to make a gift of securities, please contact Angelina Mercado at (808) 380-1573 or by email. Gifts of closely held securities require the prior approval of Hawaii Children's Action Network.

Hawaii Children's Action Network recommends that you consult with your tax advisor regarding your specific tax situation.
