Donor Advised Funds

Donor Advised Funds (DAF) are the fastest-growing giving method and a tax-efficient way to manage charitable donations. DAFs allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants through the fund over time.

A DAF allows you to give back to a cause that’s close to your heart - like JW House. It’s an opportunity to put your charitable dollars to work – where the need is great – but on your own terms. Thus, you have flexibility to tailor your philanthropic giving in easy, cost-effective ways.

You can partner with JW House through your DAF and help support families facing medical crises, enabling them to stay close when they need each other most.

How to recommend a gift to JW House through your DAF:

  1. Request a grant distribution through your DAF sponsor.
  2. Be sure to use the JW House EIN # 20-2034560
  3. Indicate whether your gift is unrestricted or designated to a specific cause i.e. a program, appeal/mailer, or general support. You can also designate JW House as a beneficiary for your DAF.

Legacy Donor Spotlight


Linda Yuen

Linda Yuen started volunteering on Monday nights at JW House in February 2013 after spending many years as a teacher. For more than two years Linda’s compassion, kindness and strength helped hundreds of JW House guests while they cared for a loved one experiencing a medical crisis. Linda shared many stories and amazing photos from her trips to exotic places around the globe. Each of them a significant milestone as she lived her journey with stage 4 lung cancer. Linda would say, “Do not wait to enjoy life! I am grateful for my ‘extra’ time.” Linda enjoyed her service at JW House so much so that she kept her JW House badge with her during her hospital stays. Linda passed away on September 10, 2016, but continues to help families through a generous bequest of nearly $55,000 she left to JW House. We are grateful to Linda for her service, her financial support, and her friendship.
