Launch a Powerful Legacy

As part of the fastest-growing category in charitable giving, the donor-advised Bradley Impact Fund provides you with essential benefits:

  • Tax Benefits – Gifts deliver an immediate income tax deduction in the year of the contribution and potential reduction of AMT, making year-end giving simple. Contributions to the Fund can appreciate tax-free. Donor-advised funds are not subject to estate tax or capital gains tax when gifted as an appreciated asset.
  • Investment Options – Select from several portfolios offering various levels of fluidity and growth. Accounts of $1 million or more may recommend an independent investment advisor, subject to the Bradley Impact Fund’s review and approval.
  • Legacy-Building and Planned Giving – By appointing successor advisors, you establish a charitable legacy for your family. Or, direct a transfer of your account to the Bradley Foundation at your passing, ensuring the ongoing support of conservative organizations aligned with Bradley’s clear donor intent. You may also direct distribution of assets to charitable organizations within your lifetime or beyond.
  • Acceptance of Complex Assets – You can easily transfer wealth into your personal account by contributing real estate, appreciated securities, closely-held business assets, and other illiquid assets such as art and collectibles.
  • Control and Privacy – Support your interests with anonymity, and avoid direct solicitations from grantee organizations. You determine your level of involvement with grantee organizations and the means of communication.
  • Streamlined Management – Rely on the convenience and security of our online, self-service donor portal for 24/7/365 access to your account. Use the Giving Hub to manage contributions, research charitable organizations, recommend grants, view investment pool performance, access and track your contribution and grant history, and more.
