Strengthen Your Client Relationships by Leveraging Our Expertise in Philanthropic Giving
The DCF, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, will partner with you and your clients who wish to donate assets to create charitable funds to benefit nonprofit organizations or causes.
Join the Charitable Partners Program.
Complete our online application. All members of the Charitable Partners Program will be listed on the DCF website, even before they have an active client.
Establish and name your pool.
Create and name your Partner Pool with a minimum of $250,000 total, from one or more clients. The DCF becomes your client and opens an investment account with you.
Develop your DCF investment strategy.
Design an investment strategy for the Partner Pool in alignment with the DCF Investment Policy.
Manage the assets and earn fees.
Investment managers participating in the Charitable Partners Program continue to earn their standard management fees on the assets in the Partner Pool. The DCF handles all administrative requirements of the charitable fund and applies a standard administrative fee.
Encourage other clients to join your pool.
After the initial $250,000 Partner Pool is established, clients may be added to the Pool by giving as little as $15,000 or $25,000, depending on the type of charitable fund they establish. Your clients may even establish legacy funds, which require no immediate financial gift. The DCF will work with you to produce informational materials to use with your clients.
Additional terms and conditions apply.
