This fund serves as a financial tool much like a private foundation, but offers more attractive options when it comes to realizing your personal charitable objectives. With a Donor-Advised Fund, costs and administration are shared and minimized. You may claim a charitable income tax deduction and may not have to pay any capital gains, if the gift is of appreciated property. You have the flexibility with a Donor-Advised Fund of giving to your charity(s) of choice now or over time.
With the Donor-Advised Fund from Jesus Film Project® and our Great Commission Foundation® (GCF) (recently renamed Cru Foundation® (Cru®)), you will receive not only the wise counsel and personal service you find at your local bank or brokerage house, but also have your own custom online self-service website. The GCF/TCF Donor-Advised Fund website allows you to manage your account online, add to the fund, and make grants to the ministries you care about. The website and the customer account will give you the tools and knowledge to always be on top of your fund and help you exercise greater stewardship.
Perhaps the greatest benefit of having a Donor-Advised Fund with Cru Foundation® is there are “no quarterly administration fees” on your account; you pay 0%!
Plus, the overall account expenses (investment advisory fees) are lower than you will find elsewhere; most people will pay only about .50%. And with that savings, you will be able to give more to the ministries and charities you care about. Click here for the 10 Benefits of a Great Commission Donor-Advised Fund.
