Appreciated assets, such as private equity, hedge fund interest, insurance policies, and more, can also make a significant charitable impact.

Why do we charge an administration fee?
Giving to one charity might be simple, but giving to many charities, planning giving goals, and setting up long-term succession plans is a different kind of giving. Using a donor-advised fund saves you time and helps with the administrative tasks needed to support the charities you believe in.
The fee enables us to provide you with access to our knowledgeable staff, in-depth due diligence, advanced research tools, such as the GuideStar Nonprofit Directory, and supports an online 24/7 account portal for all account management activities. It also covers general operating costs, such as legal, accounting, processing and staff.
Select account status is subject to Vanguard Charitable's approval and is based on account balance, activity, and patterns. Most accounts with balances of more than $1 million for at least three months are approved for Select status. Account status is reviewed and approved on a quarterly basis.
We offer a selection of Vanguard investments. You can work with your clients to select investments to help grow their charitable dollars. The more the investments grow, the more charitable dollars your clients have to grant to charities. More growth means more charitable impact over time.
Straightforward, pre-allocated investments with professional rebalancing.
Individual funds across risk and asset classes to create a custom investment.
Integrating environmental, social and governance criteria into underlying analysis.
