America's Independent Donor Advised Fund

Established in 1993, American Endowment Foundation is the leading
"independent", national, Donor Advised Fund program.

At AEF, independent integrity is one of our core values. Many donor advised fund programs are the charitable arm of a for-profit financial institution. We believe that true independence improves the reliability and enhances the flexibility of the Donor Advised Fund program, thereby contributing to its usefulness and objectivity.

  • AEF accrues no benefit from brokerage services, commissions, finder fees, or product sales.

  • AEF does not sell proprietary financial products or services.
