Donor-Advised Funds

Donor-advised funds (DAFs) offer a simple, flexible, and tax-efficient way for you to support i.c.stars. A DAF allows donors to make a charitable contribution via a public charity such as Fidelity Charitable or Schwab Charitable. Donors can contribute to the fund as frequently as they like, and then recommend grants to i.c.stars when they want to give.



A donor’s legacy and generosity can extend beyond their lifetime by making a bequest to i.c.stars. Bequest language can be included in a donor’s will, and the donation can be either a set amount or a percentage of their estate. Speak to an attorney or go to to create a will/bequest today.
