Donor Advised Funds

A Donor-Advised Fund is a charitable investment account that supports philanthropic organizations. They allow donors to receive an immediate tax deduction for their generous contribution and continue supporting the charities they love at a comfortable pace. 

Clients of some of the largest Donor-Advised Funds can easily designate the Allentown Rescue Mission as a benefactor by clicking on their fund from the list on this page. When you contribute cash, securities, or other assets to a donor-advised fund, you are generally eligible to take an immediate tax deduction. Then those funds can grow tax-free, and you can provision the profits to any IRS-qualified public charity. 

Grants made to the Allentown Rescue mission through Donor-Advised Funds are designated to be used “Where Most Needed.” If you have a specific interest that you’d like to discuss, please contact Lori Novak, Development Manager, At 610-740-5500 exit 311 or email
