Make a gift from your donor-advised fund
Use your tax-deductible donor-advised fund (DAF) to make a gift to Cornell. You can most likely go into your external DAF portal and request that they issue us a grant (Legal Name: Cornell University, Federal Tax Identification Number: 15-0532082 ). Your administrator will typically mail the check to the primary address they have on file for Cornell, or your administrator may send us the funds electronically. In either regard, is important that we are made aware of this forthcoming gift, whether it's by mail or electronically so that we can ensure that it is properly allocated and designated. We encourage you to email our Gift Cashier at email@example.com with the following information:
- 1. Name of DAF administrator
- 2. Amount of the forthcoming check
- 3. Area of designation at Cornell
- 4. Date of distribution request
Need further help directing your gift to Cornell? Give us a call at 1-800-279-3099, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that gifts from your external donor-advised fund may take some time to arrive at Cornell, and we encourage that year-end distributions be timed appropriately.
