A New, Easy Way to Recommend a Grant Through your Donor Advised Fund

Your DAF can be used in multiple ways to support our mission!  

If you believe in Thornwell as much as we do, I hope you’ll consider how a grant from your Donor Advised Fund can change lives for the better. With your help, we’ll ensure that children and families who come to Thornwell can heal from the trauma they’ve endured.  

Did you know that your leadership giving can be granted with a one-time gift, monthly recurring giving, or even designating Thornwell as a beneficiary to receive a portion of your DAF?  

Your one-time grant will make a difference in the life of a child or family today.  

Your monthly recurring grant will help sustain Thornwell’s mission and help continuously.  

Your beneficiary designation will give you the satisfaction of knowing you’ve provided for Thornwell in the future.  

If you tell us that you have named Thornwell as a beneficiary of your DAF, we can thank you now and recognize you as a member of the Jacobs Legacy Society.  You can make a bequest for a specific amount, a percentage, or all or a portion of what is left after other distributions are made.  

Are you ready to recommend a grant to help make a lifesaving difference for children in foster care? If the answer is “YES!” we want to make sure you have the best information to move forward with recommending a grant from your DAF. 

If you have a giving account with local or national sponsors (Fidelity, National Christian, local Community Foundations, and more!), we’ve just made changing lives even easier.  

The new DAF ‘quick form’ may be the solution for you!

Thank you for considering a DAF grant to help children and families whose lives and livelihoods have been shattered by trauma, neglect, or abuse. You’re also helping to prevent destabilized families. That’s the power of your giving.
