What is a Donor-Advised Fund?

A donor advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to support your favorite causes. It allows charitably-inclined individuals, families and businesses to make tax-deductible charitable donations of cash, publicly-traded stock and in some cases, certain illiquid assets.


Bequests

Gift planning is among the most powerful ways to invest in research. Gift planning makes it possible for you to increase your impact by giving more than you otherwise would. In addition, gift planning makes it possible to have an impact sooner than you otherwise would.

Our program encompasses all charitable gifts, such as wills, trusts, life insurance, retirement plans, stock and donor advised funds.

Learn more by contacting Sam Rogers at srogers@lcrf.org or (212) 588-6419


Gifts of Securities

Donating securities provides a tax-efficient way to support innovative lung cancer research. By donating shares of stock, supporters can minimize their tax liability, get a tax deduction of the fair-market value of the stock and avoid capital-gains taxes on portfolio growth — all while helping support promising research that might otherwise go unfunded.

Workplace Giving

Private employers, federal, state and local governments all offer payroll deduction opportunities.

Payroll deduction is an employer-sponsored program that empowers you to support the Lung Cancer Research Foundation’s (LCRF) mission with a tax-deductible donation given directly from your paycheck. Payroll deduction is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to LCRF, but there are many options available. Work with your HR department to find out if your company participates in any of the following programs to get started.

Combined Federal Campaign

Federal employees (civilian, military and postal workers) can donate to LCRF through the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), which is a workplace giving campaign specifically targeting federal workers. To designate your contribution to LCRF, use CFC ID # 42372.

You can donate to LCRF when you make your CFC pledge in the fall. Check with your HR department for details on when to pledge. Campaigns run between September 1 and December 15 each year.
