How to Start!
Establish a Donor-Advised Fund by completing a Renaissance Charitable Gift Fund Application. On the
application, the donor(s) will be asked to name their fund. Typically donors choose a name in honor of
themselves, their family, a relative, a friend, or a cause that is important to them.
The donor's financial advisor may open a brokerage or mutual fund account for the donor-advised fund and
work with the RCF to have donations of cash and/or securities transferred into the account. Mail the
Application along with any investment account applications to the Renaissance Charitable Foundation Inc.
at 8910 Purdue Rd., Suite 555, Indianapolis, IN 46268; or fax to (866) 736-4624.
Once the donation is approved by RCF, the donor (or their investment advisor, if desired) will receive
further communications and instructions from a Representative of RCF. In the event a contribution is not
approved, the donor (or their investment advisor, if desired) will be contacted to return the contribution.
