Opening a charitable fund at the DCF is simple, joyful and powerful. 

You can make the impact you want to have in Delaware in partnership with the DCF.

Our goal is to help you create a customized plan to achieve your unique charitable goals, realize tax benefits, and maximize impact.
We will work very closely with you and your financial advisor, estate planner or accountant to identify the giving tools and strategies that are right for you. 

Among the types of funds available are:

Donor Advised

Remain actively involved in how your gift is used to help charitable organizations and causes.


Invest in students.


Assign your gift’s earnings to the organization(s) of your choice, for a set time or in perpetuity.

Field of Interest

Establish a permanent, flexible source of charitable dollars to support a cause you care about.

Annuities/Charitable Remainders

Some donors find that charitable gift annuities or charitable remainder trusts enable them to meet their charitable goals, take advantage of tax benefits and ensure a stream of income for the rest of their lives.
