Special Gifts

Gift Your DAFs, Stocks, or Cryptocurrency

Make a Meaningful Impact with Your Assets

Donate from your donor-advised fund, gift stocks, or even cryptocurrency. Your contribution provides you with significant tax advantages and supports Via riders.


A donor-advised fund (DAF) is an account for charitable donations that offers tax benefits. Add money, stocks, and other assets to this account through organizations like Vanguard Charitable or a community foundation. When you contribute, you can get a tax break, and earnings aren’t taxed.


Donating stock (vs. cash) can save you money. When you donate stock, you avoid capital gains tax while deducting 100% of the value of the contribution.


Donate Bitcoin, Ethereum, USD Coin, and other cryptocurrencies and reduce tax-gain burdens.

Under “Make a Donation” in the form below, select DAF, Stock, or Crypto to start making your donation. To receive a receipt, please include your email address.

What is a donor-advised fund?

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized investment account created just for charitable giving. DAFs are a simple, flexible, and tax-advantageous way for you to contribute directly to our work.

How does it work?

  • Contribute cash, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, or other assets to an institution that sponsors a DAF program, such as Vanguard Charitable, Fidelity Charitable, Schwab Charitable, or a community foundation.
  • Your contributions to the DAF are considered charitable donations and eligible for an immediate tax deduction.
  • Any growth your DAF enjoys is tax-free.
  • Contact your DAF institution at any time to recommend direct grants from your fund to the public charities you care most about. Enjoy expert investment and grant management.

For more information or help with contributing to Via Mobility Services from a DAF sponsored by an institution, please email donations@viacolorado.org.
