Your Corporate Philanthropic Concierge

In today’s corporate world, charitable outreach can be overwhelming. Let us navigate these waters with you. Our expert team is dedicated to promptly addressing your needs, ensuring your corporate giving remains confidential and protected.

Corporate Donor Advised Funds (CDAF)

A CDAF can serve as your company’s corporate foundation, provide tax advantages, increase your company’s visibility in the community, and encourage others to see your company in a positive light.

However, that’s not necessarily why you give. Philanthropy is important to you and your employees. You give back to the community because you want to make a difference.

A CDAF is a giving vehicle that allows your business the flexibility to support your choice of charities at virtually any time with the resources that work for your company. You donate to the fund, receive the immediate deduction, and recommend where your donation goes.

Whatever your reason for giving, NCF’s job in establishing your CDAF is to help you fulfill your company’s philanthropic mission as easily and effectively as possible, and we also offer these advantages:

  • Cost Savings: Avoid overhead expenses by working with our expert team, streamlining the launch of your charitable initiatives.
  • Centralized Giving: Consolidate your corporate giving efforts under a single structure for greater efficiency and impact.
  • No Minimum Balance: Start your fund without the burden of a minimum balance requirement.
  • Affordable Fees: Enjoy the benefits of a foundation without the high costs; our fees are a fraction of what a private foundation typically incurs.

Fiscal Partnership

A Corporate Donor Advised Fund (CDAF) can leverage NCF for fiscal sponsorship, allowing us to serve as an incubator for your charitable initiatives while you work toward obtaining your own 501(c)(3) status. NCF offers the flexibility to continue as your back-office administrator even after you’ve achieved charitable status.

Our fiscal partnership services are adaptable to your specific needs, ranging from administrative and accounting support to grant and scholarship management.
