Charitable Checking AccountSM
– A Simple, Effective Way to Give

This holiday season, consider paying forward your blessings and help make the world - and your community - a better place. When you establish a free Charitable Checking Account℠ (CCA) through The Dayton Foundation for yourself or a loved one, you can spread holiday cheer while making your own giving easier.

No minimum deposit or balance is required, and you can give online to charities of your choice - locally and around the world. The CCA service helps you make the most of your charitable dollars and maximize your tax benefits. We take care of the details so you can focus on what really matters - making the holidays brighter for others!
