Growfund is a donor-advised fund (DAF) built by Global Impact, the world leader in growing global philanthropy. A DAF is a charitable giving tool that operates much like a 401(k) or your very own personal foundation. You can save or invest your funds, allowing them to grow over time to make a difference in the biggest possible way. It's free to start an account and your contributions are tax deductible. Growfund was created so that you can start changing the world at your own pace, on your time, with a bit of fun. Join our community of givers at www.mygrowfund.org.
