Create a DAF with the Dallas Seminary Foundation

Consider opening a DAF with the Dallas Seminary Foundation. When you fund a DAF with us, you can spread your charitable giving over time and among different ministries within DTS. Just as with other DAFs, you will receive an income tax deduction in the year you make contributions, and the Foundation does all the administration for you. It’s like your own personal charitable checking account! 

Login to Your Foundation Account

If you already have a DAF with the Dallas Seminary Foundation, you can easily login to your account below. 

Create Your Legacy of Philanthropy

The final distribution of contributions remaining in your DAF after your lifetime can be designated when you create or update your fund.

If you decide to change your beneficiary designation to include Dallas Theological Seminary, would you let us know? We would like to recognize you for your generosity and ensure that your gift is used as you intend.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about setting up your legacy gift or if you need more information.

6 ways you can make an impact with your Donor Advised Fund

Memorialize, honor, or commemorate a loved one or an event.


Avoid capital gains by first transferring appreciated stock to your DAF and then gifting it in minutes.


Teach your loved ones about charity and why you believe in giving back.

Build a sense of community (and make a bigger impact) by forming “giving circles” with other DAF owners including friends and family members.

Bundle your charitable gifts (doing so could result in an opportunity to itemize your deductions in the same year).

Leave all or a portion of your account to charity simply by changing your beneficiary designation.

We hope you will consider naming Dallas Seminary Foundation as a beneficiary of your account. You may even designate the Foundation to receive a portion of the account value, leaving the remaining portion for your loved ones to continue your legacy of philanthropy.
