You may also want to consider what will happen with funds in your account after your lifetime. One way to ensure your legacy of support for the nation’s rail systems is to designate any residual funds to Rail Passengers Association. Learn how.

6 ways you can make an impact with your donor-advised fund

Memorialize, honor, or commemorate a loved one or an event.

Avoid capital gains by first transferring appreciated stock to your DAF and then gifting it in minutes.

Teach your loved ones about charity and why you believe in giving back.

Build a sense of community (and make a bigger impact) by forming “giving circles” with other donor-advised fund owners including friends and family members.

Bundle your charitable gifts (doing so could result in an opportunity to itemize your deductions in the same year).

Leave all or a portion of your account to charity simply by changing your beneficiary designation.

We hope you will consider naming Rail Passengers Association as a beneficiary of your account. You may even designate only a portion of the account value, leaving the remaining portion for your children or grandchildren to continue your legacy of philanthropy.
