Establishing a fund at the Rolling Plains Quail Research Foundation enables you to make a lasting impact on conserving wild quail.

Field of Interest Fund
A field of interest fund supports your specified area of quail research. In collaboration with RPQRF staff, you determine the purpose and scope of the fund at inception, and RQPRF utilizes the fund as a resource to execute research projects within that scope. RPQRF may also issue grants to other conservation organizations performing research within the fund’s stated purpose. A field of interest fund can accept additional contributions from other supporters, allowing your impact to extend beyond the scope of your original gift.

Donor-Advised Funds
Donor-advised funds are the fastest-growing charitable vehicles offered today. With a donor-advised fund, a donor establishes and contributes to an account generally in his or her name. The donor then recommends grants from the account to 501 (c)(3) charities, including the timing and amount of the grants. The “donate now, decide later” aspect of donor-advised funds allows you to make charitable contributions, receive immediate tax benefits and then recommend grants from the fund over time. A donor-advised funds can help you organize your charitable giving, integrate it with an overall financial plan, and benefit charities without heavy costs or administrative/tax reporting requirements.

Importantly, a donor-advised fund provides you with more involvement in the grant-making process and flexibility to support a variety of projects that matter to you most. You may recommend grants on your timetable, with no mandatory annual distribution requirement. Additionally, you can extend the impact of your contributions by appointing successor advisors.

Contributions of cash, appreciated securities, stocks, real estate and tangible assets are all acceptable ways to contribute to a donor-advised fund. And because the fund invests contributions, it has the potential to grow assets over time. This offers you the potential to grant more to charity. Donors recommend how contributions should be invested, typically choosing from a menu of mutual fund options or other professionally managed investments.

There are also many tax advantages associated with donor-advised funds. A donor who contributes appreciated assets will not be subject to capital gains tax on those assets and assets donated to the donor-advised fund grow tax-free. Contributions to donor-advised funds may also provide you with greater tax savings compared to contributing to a family foundation.
