What are Donor Advised Accounts?
A donor advised fund is a charitable giving vehicle administered by the PAA Foundation and created for the purpose of managing charitable donations on behalf of businesses, families or individuals.  It offers the opportunity to consolidate all your charitable giving in one fund and let the Foundation manage the administrative services, at a minimal fee.  It is an efficient, effective alternative to direct giving or creating a private foundation.  Donors enjoy convenience, cost savings and tax advantages by conducting their grant making through a PAAF fund.
