Donor Advised Funds

Support life-changing care through a donor advised fund

Ways to Give

Recommending a gift to Barrow Neurological Foundation through your donor advised fund (DAF) is simple. A DAF is a separately managed fund that is maintained and operated by a sponsoring organization, such as the Arizona Community Foundation, Fidelity Charitable, BNY Mellon Charitable Gift Fund or Schwab Charitable. Once the donor establishes a DAF, that individual retains advisory privileges with respect to investment allocations and distributions to various charities.

In addition to offering ease of administration, a donor-advised fund offers the opportunity to create a low-cost, flexible way to diversify your philanthropy without the expense of creating a private foundation.

It is important to note that a DAF distribution is subject to IRS charitable contribution restrictions. A recommendation for a distribution from a DAF will likely not be approved by the sponsoring organization if any portion of the gift will be used to provide more than incidental benefits. For instance, DAF gifts cannot be used to pay for tickets to a fundraising event, gala dinner, or golf tournament.

You can donate directly to Barrow Neurological Foundation by providing the following information to the sponsoring organization of your fund.

  • Legal Name: Barrow Neurological Foundation
  • Federal Tax ID: 86-0174371
  • Mailing Address:
    124 W. Thomas Road, Suite 250
    Phoenix, AZ 85013
  • Specify the desired amount of your gift
  • Name of the fund where your gift should be directed or the description of the purpose.

Each organization will have the appropriate forms to complete these donations, which you can usually access through an online portal or by working with your fund adviser. Your sponsoring organization can then complete the transaction to distribute funds to Barrow Neurological Foundation.
