Benefits of a Donor Advised Fund?



We take care of the paperwork and administrative tasks associated with giving: processing grants, sending grant checks and award letters, and preparing quarterly statements about fund activity. Grant recommendations may be made as often as you like and are processed on the 1st and 15th of each month. 



Our knowledgeable staff is available to consult with you and provide the help you need: creating a giving plan, finding information on a specific organization or suggesting organizations that match your charitable interests. Contact Sheri Gadberry for more information. 

We host educational events on topics of interest to our donors. We are also happy to arrange a one-on-one consultation with you and your family members.  Contact Sheri Gadberry at 901-374-0400 or via email
