The AEF Difference for Individual Donors & their Families
The AEF Difference for Donors
As the nation’s largest independent provider of donor advised funds, we give you the freedom to focus on giving and building a legacy, while we handle the rest.
Whether you’re considering starting your own family foundation or already have one, we can help.
What makes AEF different?
True independence. Unlike commercial donor advised fund programs, we maintain our independence at AEF. Our independence provides you, the donor, with the greatest flexibility – within IRS guidelines – to design and conduct your philanthropic planning as effectively and efficiently as possible.
Investment Choice. We offer unparalleled investment choice at all levels. On your advice we can engage your trusted investment advisor to manage the assets in your AEF donor advised fund. We can keep your investment account on your familiar custodial platform.
Flexibility. You will enjoy the greatest flexibility in terms of the types of assets you can contribute, how long we can hold those assets, the range of charities you choose to support and your ability to continue your charitable legacy over successive generations. We specialize in gifts of complex, illiquid assets. You can support your favorite charities in your local community and all over the United States.
Personalized Service. No other leading donor advised fund program offers this unparalleled level of personalized philanthropic service. We provide full concierge service that focuses on you, your vision, your legacy.
