We’re making charitable giving convenient, easy, and secure in more ways than one thanks to the recent launch of MyFund, our new online giving tool. MyFund allows donors the convenience of managing all of their individual or family giving in one place, with the flexibility to make gifts at any time to any 501c3 in the country. For a limited time, we’re offering an additional $100 to new donors, to be designated to the charity of their choice.
“There is no question that giving is deeply personal and we want to do everything we can to support donors’ philanthropic interests,” said Anthony Maione, President and CEO, United Way of Rhode Island. “MyFund accomplishes this by putting the donor in complete control of their giving in a way that’s easy, accessible and secure, and with the ability to give to multiple charities at a time.”
A MyFund account can be established by anyone who lives or works in Rhode Island, with a minimum pledge of $1,000, and donors have until the following December to distribute their funds. Unlike most donor advised funds, MyFund allows donors to make gifts in increments as low as $25 to any 501c3 in the country, including schools, universities, and faith organizations.
Using the unique digital giving tool, donors can add funds to their account, send and track gifts, or look at their giving history and balance at anytime using a mobile phone, tablet or desktop computer. The online experience also provides the ability for donors to quickly view a historical snapshot of the organizations they’ve supported in the past. At the end of the year, donors receive a single receipt from UWRI for all of their charitable giving.
And since all of our administrative costs are covered by a permanent trust, MyFund is completely free of fees for donors and for charities, meaning 100 percent of every gift reaches the benefitting charity.
