A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized charitable account. It allows individuals, families, and businesses to make tax-deductible charitable donations of cash, publicly-traded stock, and, in some cases, certain illiquid assets, to Ethos.

Ethos partners with DAF Direct which currently facilitates grant recommendations from donors of Fidelity Charitable®, Schwab Charitable®, and the BNY Mellon Charitable Gift Fund®. More national and community foundation DAF sponsoring organizations may be added in the future.


At Ethos, transparency is important to us. Donors can research our organization, view our IRS 990 filings, and access our audited financials by visiting Guidestar and ProPublica. These resources offer valuable insights into our operations and how your support makes a difference.



Your Support Matters

We greatly appreciate your commitment to helping seniors in our community. Your donation, no matter the amount, contributes to our vision of enhancing the quality of life for older adults. Together, we can make a significant impact.

Thank you for considering Ethos as your charitable partner. Your support is a testament to your dedication to our mission.
