A Giving Fund with National Christian Foundation (NCF) is an easy-to-establish, low-cost, flexible account for charitable giving that is a popular alternative to creating a private foundation. Also known as a donor-advised fund, it's the fastest growing charitable vehicle in America today.
If you're one of the thousands of people that give through NCF, you'll love your new Giving Fund dashboard. With a fun, visual design and compelling charts and graphs, your dashboard reveals key insights about your Kingdom impact ... all in one simple, at-a-glance page.
One of the best features of a Giving Fund with NCF is that you can manage all of your giving online, anytime on our website. Here you can recommend grants to charities, view your balance and history, easily run a report to see all gifts to a particular ministry.
Whether you’re passionate about clean water in India or more Bibles for your local church, you can use your Giving Fund to recommend grants to the causes you care about most. And now, on the “My grants by category” section of your dashboard, you can track your grant history in one simple, visual pie chart. This chart illustrates seven distinct categories that all of your grants go to support.

But our Charitable Shareholder strategy allows you to donate a non-voting interest in your business, receive a substantial tax deduction, and still maintain management oversight of your business.
