Donor-Advised Fund: Make a Positive and Immediate Impact

A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is a simple, efficient and tax-effective way to make charitable contributions to Habitat for Humanity of Kansas City. Through a DAF, donors are able to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax benefit and then recommend grants from the fund over time.

If you have a donor-advised fund, you can recommend a gift to Habitat KC today. Now is the time to use your fund to make a positive and immediate impact on families in need of safe and affordable housing in your community.

Your financial advisor or fund manager can help you recommend a gift to Habitat KC, or use our online tool which services Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, Greater Kansas City Community Foundation and BNY Mellon.

Stocks & Securities Transfer

Gifts of securities — held by you, your bank, or your brokerage — offer significant tax advantages and are easy to make.

Habitat KC requires that gifts of securities be made via electronic transfer, rather than mailing actual securities certificates.

If you are giving a security, please verify with your broker that the security is eligible for electronic delivery over the Depository Trust Company (DTC) system. This works for most securities, but some securities have specific transfer instructions.

Please note that we will liquidate all donations of securities as soon as possible. The date of your gift is the date on which your electronic transfer is received into the Habitat KC account. The tax-deductible value of your gift is the average share price on the date of your gift multiplied by the number of shares given.

Once you’ve made a transfer, please contact our accounting department at (816) 924-1096 or by email at accountspayable@habitatkc.org to inform Habitat KC of the proposed donation and to ensure that you receive a prompt receipt of your gift for your tax records.
