Single Charity Fund
Give to one charity over time
You may establish one or more single charity funds. A single charity fund is a fund from which the PCA Foundation will make grants only to a single identified charitable organization that you identify at the time of your initial contribution to the fund. Donors frequently make qualified charitable distributions (QCDs) to a single charity fund as a rollover from an individual retirement account or individual retirement annuity because the limitation to a single charity makes it the only type of fund that may receive QCDs but still make grants at the donor’s pace. See IRA Charitable Rollover. But a donor may have one or more other reasons for establishing a fund that sends grants only to one church or charity. A single charity fund is subject to no fees or charges unless you choose to have it invested for earnings as an Increase Fund.
Click here to apply for one or more Single Charity Funds to receive specified portions of the amount to be received from the IRA custodian, and wait to receive email confirmation from the Foundation that it has approved all funds you recommend before you issue instructions to the custodian.
Reduce Your Taxes
Give and deduct from your taxes in the tax year when the income is earned, for ultimate granting out over time. Direct a QCD from your IRA and gain the equivalent of a deduction while also taking the standard deduction.
Simplify Your Giving
Direct your grants just to your church or another charity, but at your pace.
Advance God’s Kingdom
Grant funds as support needs and opportunities for Kingdom ministry arise.
How It Works
Select a church or other charity as the beneficiary of the fund.
Open a fund with a contribution or an IRA rollover of as little as $1,000, or as much as $100,000 (or after 2023, a higher amount as indexed for inflation).
Make grants at your own pace, 100% online.
As with every PCAF fund, review regular reports of your account activity.
additional donor-advised funds
Our Increase and Single Charity funds offer alternatives to our Advise and Consult Fund.
The Advise & Consult Fund is a donor-advised fund with no fees. Donate cash and other assets (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, private business equity, real estate) to your fund. Receive a tax deduction for the current tax year, and recommend grants at your pace to your church and favorite charities.
The Increase Fund is a donor-advised fund. It is designed for donors who want their funds to be actively invested in the market. Like donations to our Advise and Consult Fund, donations to an Increase Fund may be in the form of cash or appreciated assets. Unlike that fund, the Increase Fund is credited with investment gains or losses and is subject to a small administrative charge.
