Donor Advised Gifts

Give Globally Without Establishing a Fund



Donor Advised Gifts (DAGs) allow you to donate to a specific project abroad without committing to an ongoing relationship.

With more than 1.9 million charities in our database spanning 135 countries, we can recommend a charitable project that fits your interests and philanthropic goals. Or if you have a project in mind, you can recommend that CAF America supports a new or ongoing charitable project.
