The Vanguard Charitable advantage

These are just a few of the Vanguard Charitable advantages. While giving through a DAF carries its own benefits, working with us means working with an industry leader—something you’ve become accustomed to working with Vanguard. Combining the two provides the confidence you want, with Vanguard-backed investment options you trust, and the convenience you've come to expect. Giving through a Vanguard Charitable DAF makes your giving go further.

We were founded by Vanguard in 1997 as an independent 501(c)(3) organization and we stand by Vanguard’s commitment to diversification, transparency, and cost-effective service. We strongly align with Vanguard's principled investment philosophy and believe in the importance of long-term, strategic charitable planning through a donor-advised fund.
