Give via Donor-advised Fund

Donor-advised funds are a growing philanthropic tool that can offer immediate tax benefits to the donor. However, donor-advised funds and the sponsoring organizations that manage them can operate differently. IU Health Foundation can help you navigate the benefits and risks.

Contact Heather Perdue, vice-president, campaigns and philanthropy, by email or phone 317.962.2207.

Cradle Indianapolis
