Brown's Donor Advised Fund

Brown's donor advised fund allows you to establish a charitable account maintained and managed by Brown's world-class investment team while you consider what purposes and organizations you want your fund to support.

How It Works

  • Make an initial, tax-deductible gift of $100,000 or more to open a donor advised fund. Brown accepts gifts of cash and marketable securities and may accept other types of assets.
  • While you decide where to allocate your fund’s distributions, your gift will be managed by Brown’s investment team with no administrative fees.
  • You can provide recommendations for the distribution of both the original gift and any growth in the principal to Brown and other qualified charities.
  • At least 25% of the fund must be allocated for Brown.
  • You can benefit from investing your gift in Brown’s endowment while maintaining anonymity and privacy in your philanthropic pursuits.
