Because We Care Philanthropy exists with a simple purpose, to grow philanthropy. We accomplish this by offering Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) so donors can make grants to 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organizations, churches, public schools, and governmental agencies. The Frequently Asked Questions section near the bottom of this page will provide more information.

Once your Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is active, you will be given a username and password to access the Advisor Portal. Sign in any time, day or night, to recommend grants, check giving history, review important documents, and more. As always, our team is available to help as much or as little as needed.
From inception, Because We Care Philanthropy was designed to exist with a singular focus -- to make charitable giving simple and fun. Using Donor Advised Funds (DAFs), we help everyday philanthropists support their favorite U.S.-based nonprofit organizations. The only requirements are (1) the recipient organization be a 501(c)(3) public charity in good standing with the Internal Revenue Service at the time the grant is recommended, and (2) assurance that no goods or services will be returned in consideration of a grant made from a DAF.
You can create a Donor Advised Fund with as little as $250.
Gifts to a Donor Advised Fund qualify as gifts to public charities (as opposed to gifts to a private foundation). We won't get into the weeds of the tax code here, but we are happy to answer all of your questions at any point. Just reach out to a member of our team to learn more. The Internal Revenue Service has published this resource specific to Donor Advised Funds on its website → Donor Advised Funds
Our aim is to grow good by growing philanthropy.

As often as you'd like! There is no limit on the number of grant recommendations you can make. As long as there is money in the fund, you can recommend charitable grants via the Advisor Portal.
We encourage you to send grant recommendations with the fewest restrictions possible. Nonprofit organizations thrive when they receive unrestricted support that can be used to fund their general operations. However, we understand that some Donors prefer to target their grants toward specific projects or programs. You can do that! Just enter the details in the notes section of your recommendation inside the Advisor Portal.
We like to keep things simple. There are three basic restrictions all Donor Advised Funds must keep in mind:
Of course! We suggest the following language: "XYZ Nonprofit, I'm pleased to inform you that I have recommended a grant from the XYZ Donor Advised Fund. Grant recommendations are subject to the approval of Because We Care Philanthropy so this notification should not be interpreted as creating a legally enforceable obligation." Refer to the section above for an explanation of why DAFs can't be used to satisfy legally-binding pledges or commitments.
Unfortunately no. Bifurcation is prohibited under Section 3 of IRS Notice 2017-73 as explained in this IRS Notice.
