Donor-Advised Funds

Donor-Advised Funds (DAF) are 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. 

Santa Cruz High PTA partners with some of the largest DAF sponsor organizations and their philanthropic services teams in the United States.

Grants made to Santa Cruz High PTA through Donor-Advised Funds can be designated in one of two ways:

  • for Santa Cruz High PTA to use wherever the need is greatest

  • for Santa Cruz High PTA to use for a specific thematic area that matches the donors' interests, such as a specific club, team or other purpose

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

Santa Cruz High PTA's tax I.D. number is 94-6174400.
