Donor Advised Funds

Recommend a grant to PAWS through your Donor Advised Fund

An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, a donor advised fund (DAF) is an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.

A DAF, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to choose how much and how often money is granted to organizations like PAWS while enjoying some tax benefits. You can recommend a grant now to make an immediate impact, or use your fund to plan future charitable gifts. However you decide, you will be helping to make Philadelphia a no-kill city!

To make a gift through your DAF, ask your financial advisor to designate a gift to PAWS. 

Legal name: Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society
Address: 100 N. 2nd Street, Philadelphia, PA 19106
Federal tax ID#: 26-3862631

Your estate planner, financial advisor, or accounting professional can advise you on the tax benefits, financial considerations, and savings associated with making a planned gift to PAWS.

Please notify us! When you make a gift to PAWS through your donor advised fund, we do not always receive information that identifies you as the donor. To ensure that you receive a proper acknowledgement of your contribution or if you have any questions, please contact Lauren Hanak, Major Gifts Officer, at 267-320-6429 or lauren.hanak@phillypaws.org.
