The Raymond James Charitable Endowment Fund, a tax-qualified public charity that allows individuals and businesses to simplify the power of giving, is now available through Wall Capital Management, according to Terence M. Wall, president of the firm’s Manalapan office.

"The Raymond James Charitable Endowment Fund is a 501(c)(3) tax-qualified public charity that operates as a donor-advised fund. It is designed to simplify gift-giving and eliminate administrative hassles," Wall explained.

As a donor-advised fund, contributors recommend how the gift is invested within the options offered by the fund, which charities will receive grants, and who will serve as a successor or substitute donor adviser.

Contributions under $500,000 can be invested in any of five investment objectives. For additional information, call Terence M. Wall at (732) 972-5555.
