Co:Mission Giving Fund

The Co:Mission Giving Fund

Simplify and maximize your giving. When you open a Co:Mission Giving Fund, you have the resources at your fingertips to give like never before. It’s smart, convenient, and powerful.

A giving fund is an IRS recognized account that gives tax deductible advantages while retaining the ability to direct assets to specific charitable organizations. Commonly called a Donor Advised Fund, assets are maintained by a section 501(c)(3) organization called a sponsoring organization. The Co:Mission Foundation serves as your sponsoring organization and works to ensure the assets placed in your fund reflect the true fair market value. We then work with you to direct those assets to the Kingdom building ministries of your choosing.

How a Giving Fund Works

“It’s like a charitable checking account” said one generous giver. You place assets in your Giving Fund, receive a charitable tax deduction, and recommend distributions to your favorite charities.
