Donor-Advised Funds

What is a donor-advised fund (DAF)? 

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a philanthropic giving vehicle that provides an immediate tax benefit to you, and allows you to grant funds to charities of your choice. 


How do I give through a donor-advised fund? 

You can give in two ways:  

  1. Recommend a DAF through your financial institution or foundation 

  • You can recommend a gift by contacting your financial institution or foundation.  

  • The grant will arrive at The Province of Saint Thomas of Villanova with only the fund’s name and address on it, unless you request otherwise. 


2. Contact your fund manager 

  • Call your fund manager and recommend supporting The Province of Saint Thomas of Villanova, along with the amount of the grant. 

  • Your fund manager will send a check directly to the Augustinians from your fund.* 

  *Please request that your name and address be included. We recommend that you contact us to inform us of your gift, so we can thank you for your generosity. 


When making a gift through your donor-advised fund, please use the following information:

The Legacy of

St. Augustine in the Catholic Church

Augustine was a thoughtful, empathetic, and loving servant of God. He valued community, welcomed others, and treated them the way they deserved to be treated. Augustine also laid the foundation for the Order of St. Augustine. The Order continues to explore ways to care for those in great need both in our Province work throughout Massachusetts, New Jersey, and surrounding states and in our greater missions throughout the world.

We invite you to continue to learn about St. Augustine, his life, and his teachings.
