Donor-Advised Funds

A flexible tool to make recurring donations overseas

A donor-advised fund at KBFUS is a flexible tool for individuals, families and corporate donors who wish to support European or African nonprofit organizations on a regular basis.

You can make contributions to your fund whenever it suits you, claim an immediate tax deduction for these contributions, and recommend grants to your favorite nonprofits at a later date. If you don’t have a favorite organization in mind, we can help you identify premier nonprofit initiatives in the country, region or field of your interest.

If you wish to establish an invested donor-advised fund, you may select one of our four investment pools for the allocation of the assets of your fund. Or you may recommend that the assets be managed by an investment adviser of your choice.  All investment portfolios are managed under the guidance of our Investment Committee.

Because KBFUS is a Section 501(c)(3) public charity, donors may claim the maximum tax benefits allowed by U.S. tax law for their contributions.
