University Impact (UI) is a 501(c)(3) public charity that sponsors the UI DAF, helping donors create the most impact with their charitable giving while creating the next generation of social impact leaders.
Donors can make grants, recoverable grants, credit guarantees, loans, or equity investments to support these organizations.
Donors can choose to donate cash, stocks, or non-publicly traded assets such as private business interests, cryptocurrency, and real estate to their DAF through a simple and streamlined process.
Regardless of the amount in your DAF, you can select your preferred financial advisor, custodian, brokerage account, and investment strategies. This allows the DAF account to be managed in the same way as your other investments.
Most DAFs unnecessarily limit donors to only giving grants to US-based nonprofits. The UI DAF allows donors to support all types of social impact organizations, whether they are domestic or international, and regardless of legal structure (nonprofit, for-profit, governmental, and hybrid organizations).
