Advised Fund (DAF)

A DAF is an exellent and tax-efficient way to give to charity. There are several big advantages to using a DAF as opposed to giving cash.

  • You get a tax deduction in hte year that you donate to the fund that you control.
  • You can give from the fund to charities of you choice years later.
  • You can donate euities that have appreciated and nobody owes capital gains tax.
  • Your donated money can remain invested in index funds.

Benefits of a life estate reserved

  • Receive a federal income tax deduction for the value of the remainder interest in your home or farm
  • Preserve your lifetime use and control of your home or farm
  • Create a life estate based on more than one life. This will preserve the use of the property for you and a loved one, such as a spouse or dependent child

How a life estate works

  1. You deed your home or farm to Ripon College. The deed will include a provision that gives you the right to use your home or farm for the rest of your life and that of any other life estate party named in the deed.
  2. You and Ripon College sign a maintenance, insurance and taxes (MIT) agreement to explain that you will do your best to keep the property in good condition and that you will maintain property insurance and pay the property taxes.
  3. When the owners of the life estate have passed away, your home or farm will belong to Ripon College. We will use or sell the property to further our charitable work.
