About the Alliance
The Alliance for Good was created to inspire generous giving which funds innovative solutions in health, personal development, the environment and capitalism. The Alliance for Good is a network of private foundations and Donor Advised Funds focused on deploying resources that support the environment, health and maximum human potential. The Alliance provides access to a network of professionals and financial advisors to support with setting up a Donor Advised Fund and other philanthropic and investment instruments to increase impact and legacy.
Social Impact Incubation
The Alliance for Good Co-Founders are incubating and supporting a wide range of projects from advocacy work, regenerative agriculture to scaling conscious consumer behavior. No projects are too small or too large for the Alliance community. Each project typically has 1-2 primary stakeholders who lead the stewardship of a given project.
Through experiences and events the Alliance for Good creates opportunities for the community to connect and share inspiring opportunities for positive aligned impact. In 2018 Alliance for Good hosted 3 curated events in Ojai, California to bring awareness about the Alliance and opportunities for engagement, attract new donors and continue expanding the community. These invite-only events are a way for individuals to learn more about the Alliance and to learn about opportunities for philanthropic investments and contributions.

What is a Donor Advised Fund?
A donor advised fund is a uniquely flexible vehicle enabling donors to allocate to philanthropic projects. Donors enjoy administrative convenience, cost savings, and tax advantages by conducting their grant making through the fund. Donor advised funds are the fastest growing charitable giving vehicles in the United States because of the tax benefits as well as how simple, easy, efficient and effective they are when planning philanthropic contributions.
What are the tax benefits?
A contribution to the Alliance for Good Donor Advised Fund is immediately eligible for a charitable deduction from your federal income tax. A charitable deduction is also available in many states that have their own income taxes. One hypothetical example: Imagine that you purchased stock in a company many years ago for $10,000, and the value of the stock has increased over time to $50,000. If you donated the stock to AFG DAF, you would be eligible for a charitable deduction for the stock’s full fair market value of $50,000. AFG DAF’s later sale of the stock would not trigger for you on the $40,000 of capital gain. Our tax advisors can help you calculate the tax benefits gained specific to your circumstances.
Who can open a advised fund?
Individuals, families, corporations, partnerships, trusts, family foundations or other legal entities may fund an account.
