Make a Gift from Your Donor Advised Fund

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a type of giving program that allows you to combine the most favorable tax benefits with the flexibility to easily support your favorite charities. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.

If you have a donor advised fund with Fidelity Charitable or Schwab Charitable, you may use the form below to initiate a grant recommendation from your fund. 

Make a Gift of Stock

A gift of stock or appreciated securities can also provide attractive tax benefits. To make a gift of stock to CRWA, print and complete this stock donation form and send copies to CRWA and your broker. 

CRWA empowered me to take an active role as a citizen, first as a
monthly volunteer, then as a summer intern and now pursuing a career
advocating for the environment, supporting a better future for us all.
