Donor-Advised Funds

Donor-advised funds (DAF) are the fastest-growing charitable giving vehicle in the United States because they are one of the easiest and most tax-advantageous ways to give to charity. It is easy to make a gift to Beyond Shelter through your DAF.

If you have an account with Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, or BNY Mellon access the DAF Direct link to recommend a gift conveniently from your account.

How to recommend a gift to Beyond Shelter

Request a grant distribution through your DAF sponsor. You should be sure to use Beyond Shelter’s EIN # 52-1449375. Indicate if your gift is unrestricted (to be used where the need is greatest), or for one of the following designations: Alan P. Linton, Jr. Emergency Family Shelter, Emergency Family Shelter, Beyond Shelter Campaign, Homeless Prevention Services, Prescription Drug Assistance, or School Supply Drive.

Please let us know if you have requested a grant distribution to Beyond Shelter.
Contact Meg Kula, Director of Philanthropy, at or call 301-631-2670, extension 117.

Request the distribution check be mailed to:
