Planned Giving

Donor-Advised Funds

Donor-Advised Funds (DAFs) are investment accounts for the purpose of supporting charitable organizations. By recommending a grant from your DAF to CFK Africa, you can support our work with funds you already have set aside. Just let your DAF custodian know that you would like to recommend a grant to CFK Africa. 

Stocks or Appreciated Securities

Rather than cash, some supporters choose to donate their appreciated stock directly to us, enabling donors to help us build healthy communities and develop youth leaders, at less of a cost to you. Donating stocks allows you to avoid capital gains tax and often take a charitable deduction for the full value of the asset. 

CFK Africa processes stock gifts through the University of North Carolina. Your bank or broker may transfer stock to UNC’s brokerage account with the information below. To help UNC correctly identify, value and receipt your gift, please let us know to expect your gift and have your broker share the stock information (number of shares, name of stock and symbol) and originating broker with Deputy Director of Communications and Development, Emma Harver, at emma.harver@cfkafrica.org

Plan your Legacy

Planned giving can ensure your legacy lives on once you pass away and, depending on the type of gift, can provide tax benefits now. There are many gift models for planned giving including a Bequest, IRA Charitable Rollover, Charitable Gift Annuity, Charitable Remainder Unitrust, and Charitable Lead Trust. If you would like to include CFK Africa in your planned giving or have questions regarding planned giving, please contact Deputy Director of Communications and Development, Emma Harver, at emma.harver@cfkafrica.org.
