Supporting Justice for All

Donor Advised Funds


Our Donor Advised Fund (DAF) holders set up this flexible charitable giving vehicle as an alternative to creating a private foundation. This DAF account enables them to give to organizations in their area of interest with the support of Liberty Hill’s advising and administrative expertise.


Celia Bernstein, Donor Advised Fund Holder

“I have been a Liberty Hill supporter since 1988, but several years ago I opened a donor advised fund (DAF) with my husband, Brad, and my 26-year-old daughter, Lena. I increased my support of Liberty Hill because I believe in sharing decision-making power over my philanthropy. I want to be a part of Liberty Hill’s investment in community organizing and power building where it’s most needed in LA. I also believe in Liberty Hill’s practice of making grantmaking decisions through a Community Funding Board.

By working with Liberty Hill’s philanthropic advisors, my giving to Black-led organizations increased exponentially, reaching more than a dozen rising grassroots groups, Black-led giving circles, and major initiatives anchoring racial justice in Los Angeles.

Liberty Hill’s philanthropic advisors met with us to determine our interests and even met with Lena separately to craft recommendations to help maximize the impact she wants to make. Thank you Liberty Hill for being our family’s philanthropic hub for social change!”
