A Donor-Advised Fund provides an excellent option for donors who are considering establishing a private foundation but are concerned about the set up costs and the on-going administrative burden. This type of fund enables you to have on-going participation in the selection of charities that will benefit from your gift.

As well, existing foundations may transfer their assets to The Community Foundation of Mississauga to achieve higher returns and reduce administration costs while still remaining involved in allocating grants.

Donors can establish a Donor Advised fund with a $25,000 gift.
