Donor Advised Funds

Creating a lasting impact for Arizona’s children and families

Donor Advised Funds are an increasingly popular and tax-efficient way to make charitable donations. Donor Advised Funds allow donors to create an account designated for charitable contributions and immediately receive a tax deduction. Donors can then decide how to distribute grants of the fund over time and can make additional contributions to the fund as frequently as they like.


Grants made to Southwest Human Development through Donor Advised Funds can be designated toward a specific program area of the donor’s choosing (child development programs, mental health services, Easterseals disabilities services, early literacy programs, or family support and child welfare programs), or put toward where the need is greatest.


Clients of Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable and BNY Mellon can easily make a designation using the DAF Direct widget on this page.


Southwest Human Development’s tax ID number is 86-0407179.
