Donor-Advised Funds (DAF) are a tax-efficient way to manage charitable donations.

Donor-Advised Funds allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time.

Chateau Noir Art Institute partners with some of the largest DAF sponsor organizations and their philanthropic services teams in the United States.

Grants made to Chateau Noir Art Institute through Donor-Advised Funds can be designated in one of two ways:

  • For Chateau Noir to use wherever the need is greatest.
  • For Chateau Noir to use for a specific area that matches the donor’s interests, such as scholarships, educational programs, or instrument procurement.

Clients of BNY Mellon, Fidelity Charitable, and Schwab Charitable can make a designation through the DAF Direct window on this page.

Chateau Noir Art Institute’s tax I.D. number is 99-1357943.
