Imagine a future where every child thrives, families are supported, and our community flourishes. Aloha United Way (AUW) serves as a bridge, connecting people and resources, advocating for change, and providing vital assistance to those in need.

DAF Direct makes it easier to support your favorite charities by giving directly from your donor-advised fund.

What is a DAF?

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a centralized charitable account. It allows charitably-inclined individuals, families and businesses to make tax-deductible charitable donations of cash, publicly-traded stock and in some case, certain illiquid assets, to a public charity that sponsors a DAF program.
