Donor Advised Funds

Donor Advised Funds are an easy and tax-efficient way to manage charitable giving. Donor Advised Funds allow donors to receive an immediate tax deduction for their charitable contribution, and then recommend grants from the fund on the donor’s own timeframe.


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


Grants made to Rockford Rescue Mission through Donor Advised Funds are designated to be used “Where Most Needed.” If you have a specific interest that you’d like to discuss, please contact Ted Tomita, Director of Donor Relations, at (815) 965-5332, ext. 106 or email


Rockford Rescue Mission’s tax I.D. number is 36-6132381.
