What if I want to give via my Donor Advised Fund or make a Qualified Charitable IRA distribution?
Given the nature of how such gifts come to UWF and the time it takes to have the gift received by us, it is encouraged that you start the process 5-10 business days before the giving day so that it can arrive and be counted for our giving day. It is also recommended that in your gift communication that the gift is earmarked for the DOTB – 2020 so that we can make sure it is counted.
