Through a Donor Advised Fund

Support MoCA Westport by making a donation through a Donor Advised Fund. You can recommend a grant or recurring grants now to make an immediate impact or use your fund as a tool for future charitable gifts.

MoCA Westport is not able to provide tax/financial advice and encourages you to ask your tax advisor how a gift of cash, appreciated stock, or a qualified charitable distribution from your IRA can benefit you. Gifts to a donor-advised fund (DAF) do not qualify for the higher deduction; however, you may still recommend a gift from your DAF to MoCA Westport.

MoCA Westport is a 501(c)3 organization.
