CAF CHARITABLE TRUST

The CAF Charitable Trust, our donor advised fund, enables you to create a charitable fund today, and then donate the funds to the causes you care about, whenever you want to.

The CAF Charitable Trust is our donor advised fund. With this, you're in control of your giving - you choose when you want to give and how you want to give. By opening a CAF Charitable Trust with us, you will benefit from: 

  • Strategic, expert advice on charitable giving.
  • Dedicated client relationship management.
  • Protection on international donations through our validation service.
  • Anonymous giving if required.
