Give large, one-off gifts to charity

The CAF Donor Advised Gift is a giving vehicle that lets you give occasional, large scale gifts to charity. 

Set up

Set up your CAF Donor Advised Gift account.


Donate cash, shares or other assets into your CAF Donor Advised Gift account.


Request a charitable gift to one or more of your chosen organisations.

Designed to make giving simple

With no minimum term or balance our CAF Donor Advised Gift allows donors the flexibility to give whenever their financial circumstances and tax affairs dictate.

Claim UK tax relief at the point of your gift to CAF and request onward distribution to beneficiaries around the world.

Verification of beneficiary organisations is completed by our specialised team, providing certainty that funds reach their intended destination.

CAF is trusted with over £1bn in assets by private philanthropists and distributed over £1m per day to beneficiaries last year.

Support the causes you want without having to reveal your identity if you don’t want to.
