A donor advised fund, which is like a charitable savings account, gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to the Chi Omega Foundation and other qualified charities. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now to make an immediate impact or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts.

Gifts are tax deductible as allowed by law.
