American Heart Association Donor Advised Fund Program

Help us improve and save lives in your community and across the nation by opening an American Heart Association Donor Advised Fund.

The AHA DAF is like a flexible charitable investment account. It simplifies giving so you can contribute and make grants over time to the causes you’re passionate about.


  • Name your account to reflect your passions and values
  • Involve family or close friends in your charitable legacy
  • Maximize your giving power by investing and growing your account funds
  • You can make grants anonymously
  • Receive an immediate income tax deduction when you contribute
  • By donating non-cash assets that have grown in value, you can avoid capital gains taxes (Real estate, stocks, closely held business interests and bitcoin)

How It Works
