Donor-Advised Funds

Making a gift to The Night Ministry from your donor-advised fund is convenient and easy for you, and it can have a remarkable impact on our work. Giving from a donor-advised fund can also have tax benefits for some donors.

A few things to know about donor-advised funds (DAFs):

  • You can use your DAF to make a one-time gift, or set up a recurring donation.
  • You will receive an acknowledgment for your gift, but not a charitable receipt for tax purposes. This is because it is your contribution to your donor-advised fund that is tax-deductible, not your distribution to The Night Ministry.
  • You may not be able to receive benefits (such as tickets to an event) in exchange for a gift made through your donor-advised fund. Please refer to your donor-advised fund or financial advisor.

You can also designate a nonprofit organization, including The Night Ministry, as the successor on your DAF account. This allows you to continue your legacy of charitable giving.

Please direct your Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) distribution to The Night Ministry and mail to:

The Night Ministry
ATTN: Philanthropic Engagement
1735 North Ashland Avenue
Suite 2000
Chicago, IL 60622

Ask your DAF representative to include your name and address on the distribution, so we know where to send your acknowledgment.

The Night Ministry is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization. EIN / Federal Tax ID: 36-3145764

If you do not have a DAF and are interested in learning more, contact your financial advisor and ask about setting up a charitable giving account.
