Annual giving

Annual gifts provide RAND with a foundation of support and a primary base for addressing the organization’s greatest needs. From a gift to the RAND President’s Fund or the Alumni Impact Fund, to contributions for a student scholarship or a specific research area, there are many ways to help RAND solve the world’s most pressing problems.

You can make a bequest—a gift from your estate—by including provisions in your will or trust designating contributions of cash, securities, real estate, or other assets to RAND.

Donor-advised funds

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a giving vehicle administered by a third party.

DAFs allow you to give cash, stock, and other assets and receive a tax deduction when the contribution is made—simplifying your charitable giving to RAND while offering favorable tax benefits.

Please note that you will receive an acknowledgment for your gift to RAND, but not a charitable receipt for tax purposes. The contribution to your donor-advised fund is tax-deductible, not your distribution to RAND.
