Donate Via Donor-Advised Fund

A grant from your donor-advised fund directly impacts environmental journalism.


When you invest in the Society of Environmental Journalists, you are investing in our mission to strengthen the quality, reach and viability of journalism across all media to advance public understanding of environmental issues — and are empowering environmental journalists to persevere in telling the greatest stories on Earth.


How do I make a grant with my DAF?

If you already have a DAF, you can make a grant to SEJ with the click of a button! Just use the widget to invest in the future of environmental journalism.


Join the #HalfMyDAF Challenge and support SEJ today.
Together we’ll double our impact.


1. Make a grant to SEJ through your Donor-Advised Fund.

2. Once you receive your grant confirmation, nominate SEJ for a matching grant using the #HalfMyDAF commitment form. Submit grants by June 30, 2023 to qualify for the first of two matches this year. You have until Sept 30 to spend down half your DAF.

3. #HalfMyDAF posts names of #HalfMyDAF Heroes and the nonprofits they chose to support. (Don’t worry, they won’t attach your name to the amount you’ve given and if you prefer, you can remain completely anonymous). Find out more about how #HalfMyDAF will pick the nonprofits to receive matching gifts here.

4. Spread the word! The more donors who accept the #HalfMyDAF challenge by making a grant to SEJ, the more we can support environmental journalists telling the greatest stories on Earth.

What is a Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)?


A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a philanthropic giving program that allows you to reap maximum tax benefits while supporting the causes that move you. To create a DAF, you deposit cash, securities and other assets in a fund, then delegate how they are distributed. A DAF is a simple, flexible and efficient way to manage charitable giving.
