Donor Advised Funds (DAFs)
Perhaps America's most popular investment tool for charitable giving, donor advised funds are like your own private foundation but without any of the administrative red tape. DAFs have become even more user-friendly through Orchard since we implemented the DonorFirst online portal.
Charitable Gift Annuities (CGAs)
Charitable gift annuities are The Orchard Foundation's most widely-held charitable giving tool. Orchard is licensed to issue or administer CGAs in 49 states, and with a manageable minimum investment combined with a policy to avoid reinsurance, hundreds of people are choosing this solution to reach their charitable goals.
Endowments provide funding for ministry needs today while securing continued ministry efforts into the future. They provide ongoing funding in perpetuity for a designated ministry effort by aligning your investment objectives with biblical values and competitive market returns.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of securities can be excellent alternative to cash gifts. By donating appreciated stock, bonds, or mutual funds through The Orchard Foundation, donors can avoid the capital gains taxes required by selling the security and donating cash.
The Orchard Foundation provides a variety of revocable and irrevocable trusts, allowing donors a great deal of flexibility in their estate planning. One of our representatives can work with you and your donors to decide on the tool that best fits their charitable, flexibility, and confidentiality goals.
Legacy Advised Funds
The Legacy Advised Fund is a great way to simplify how you leave a legacy to your favorite charities. It can be funded through your will or any instrument that provides for a beneficiary designation such as a retirement account or an insurance policy. It avoids the burden of changing multiple documents and contacting multiple organizations when a change is necessary. By using a Legacy Advised Fund, The Orchard Foundation ensures that your charitable goals will be accomplished.
Institutional Reserve Funds (IRFs)
The Orchard Foundation is ready with the expertise and tools to provide all the services you need for sound and effective asset management. An institutional reserve fund is an asset management vehicle that can provide an asset growth opportunity to accomplish mid-to long-term investment objectives for Christian ministries.
