Gifts from Donor Advised Funds

You can recommend a grant from your donor-advised fund to share the joy of dance with even more members of the Kansas City community. You may choose to make a one-time gift, or to create a recurring monthly or quarterly gift for even more impact.

If you would like to make a gift now through your DAF, simply click the link below to find your fund:

Create Your Legacy of Philanthropy

The final distribution of contributions remaining in your DAF after your lifetime can be designated when you create or update your fund.

If you decide to change your beneficiary designation, would you please let us know? We would like to recognize you for your generosity and ensure that your gift is used as you intend.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about setting up your legacy gift or if you need more information.

6 ways you can make an impact with your donor-advised fund

Memorialize, honor, or commemorate a loved one or an event.

Avoid capital gains by first transferring appreciated stock to your DAF and then gifting it in minutes.

Teach your loved ones about charity and why you believe in giving back.

Build a sense of community (and make a bigger impact) by forming “giving circles” with other donor-advised fund owners including friends and family members.

Combine multiple years of charitable gifts in your DAF to maximize tax benefits today (doing so could result in an opportunity to itemize your deductions in the same year).

Leave all or a portion of your account to charity simply by changing your beneficiary designation.

We hope you will consider naming Kansas City Ballet as a beneficiary of your account. You may even designate KCB to receive a portion of the account value, leaving the remaining portion for your children or grandchildren to continue your legacy of philanthropy.
