Some say it’s better to give than to receive.
We say...Why not do both with a Charitable Checking Account℠?

With The Dayton Foundation’s free Charitable Checking Account℠ (CCA) Service, you can help others by giving to the charities of your choice – locally, nationwide and even internationally. In return, you receive expert, customized service to help you make the most of your charitable dollars. We take care of the details for you, and you collect the tax benefits.

Like a personal checking account, you deposit assets into your CCA, inform The Dayton Foundation to send grants to any IRS-approved charity of your choice and we take care of the rest. There is no minimum or maximum gift or grant requirement. Plus, with our secure Donor Express system, you can do your giving online and on-the-go via your mobile device 24/7. It’s as simple as simple as Click – Give – Done!
