Donor-Advised Funds (DAF) are a tax-efficient way to manage charitable donations
Donor-Advised Funds allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time. Kalamazoo Refugee Resource Collaborative (KRRC) partners with some of the largest DAF sponsor organizations and their philanthropic services teams in the United States.
Clients of BNY Mellon, Fidelity Charitable and Schwab Charitable can make a designation through the DAF Direct window on this page.
UNICEF USA's tax I.D. number is 82-1295491.
Where do my funds go? Funds have been primarily used to support ELL tutoring for high schoolers, one-time bridge grants for housing immediately after arrival, and transportation to work during the first month of employment. Please email KRRC for any further information.
We also encourage cash donations to also be directed to local partners and resettlement agencies providing services for refugees. The Kalamazoo Literacy Council often needs donations to purchase ESL books for newly arriving refugees.
For non-cash donations such as clothing, please donate them to other area non-profits. We pull from them for refugee needs. The Sponsor's Guide (see menu options) references local agencies we work with under various tabs.
