A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving account established at a public charity, allowing donors to make charitable contributions, invest and grow assets, receive tax-deductions for their charitable contributions, and recommend grants to charitable organizations from the fund over time. You can read more about DAFs at these well known public charities: Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, Vanguard Charitable
