Donor Advised Funds

Donor Advised Funds are a popular giving method and a tax-efficient way to manage charitable donations. Donor Advised Funds allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time.

Grants made to the Blackstone Library through Donor Advised Funds that are designated for use “wherever the need is greatest” help support the library’s mission to  provide essential access to information, resources, and unique shared experiences to ensure Branford is an educated and enriched community.

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

The Blackstone Library’s tax I.D. number is 06-0662108.
