Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)

Support the Family House with a Donor Advised Fund (DAF)


What is a donor-advised fund (DAF)?

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a charitable giving account designed exclusively to invest, grow, and give assets to charities such as Gift of Life Family House for meaningful and lasting impact.  You donate assets into a DAF and recommend how those assets should be invested in the form of grants.

How do I give to the Family House through a donor-advised fund?

When you are ready to give, recommend grants from your DAF to the Family House with the help of your fund manager. If you wish, your gift can be anonymous.

When granting to the Family House through your donor-advised fund, please use the following information:



Legal Name: Transplant House

D/B/A: Gift of Life Family House


Gift of Life Family House

401 Callowhill St

Philadelphia, PA 19123

How can your donor-advised fund support the Family House?

All grants given from your DAF will help support the Family House’s mission in any way you choose. You can give to any of our three primary programs or support the Family House’s general operating costs. You can also use your grant to sponsor or underwrite a space or purchase a paver in our Legacy Garden. No matter what you’ll choose, your DAF contribution will help the Family House continue to be a “home away from home” for transplant patients and their families.

For more information about how you can use a DAF fund to support the family House, please contact Sara Cohen, Development Manager, at (267) 546-9812 or scohen@giftoflifefamilyhouse
