Advise & Consult Fund ®
Zero fees with 100% impact
The Advise & Consult Fund is a donor-advised fund with no fees. Donate cash and other assets (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and 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 Christian ministries. Start your fund with an initial gift of $1,000 or more.
Reduce Your Taxes
When you give appreciated assets (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate) to your fund, you may use the fair market value of your gift for an immediate income tax deduction, and also avoid capital gains taxes. Your tax burden is minimized, and your giving is maximized.
Simplify Your Giving
One gift to your fund can be distributed to multiple ministries in various amounts over the course of time. When it comes to grants, you recommend where to send the money, when to send it, and how much to send–even anonymously, if desired. You’ll receive regular reports of your account activity and can interact with your account online.
Advance God’s Kingdom
100% of your account balance is available for ministry impact. Use your fund to support your local church and advance Christian ministries.
