Reader feedback: I like it. I'll think about...
I like it. I'll think about contributing to your site. I was specifically looking for the comparison of fees. I suggest that other donor-advised funds be added. The following article might be worth discussing here as well... https://philanthropy.com/article/Donor-Advised-Funds-Let-Wall/152337 Perhaps in a section called Objections raised after the section on advantages.
Here's the reference in human readable format: Donor-Advised Funds Let Wall Street Steer Charitable Donations, Alan Cantor, Chronicle of Philanthropy, October 28, 2014. Viewed November 16, 2015.
This reference does provide a balanced perspective. Should the article be:
- A new "Criticisms of..." section (per Wikipedia format for opposing views),
- Added as an External link, or
- Discussed in the forum to get a consensus?

A google search of this criticism (Donor-Advised Funds Let Wall Street - Google Search) shows the article and several Wall Street articles, but nothing substantial from authoritative sources. I closed the feedback comment. --LadyGeek 10:58, 28 December 2017 (EST)
Qualified charitable distributions
I can no longer locate the previous page (or section) related to Qualified charitable distributions (QCDs). Now that QCDs are permanently in US tax law, we should add a dedicated page or insert content into an existing page.
I have some info in this Bogleheads® forum post: LadyGeek 17:05, 13 July 2016 (EDT). Where can QCDs be inserted? --
Updates for this page: Table: Comparison of Selected Donor-Advised Funds
Fidelity, col.6: .015% - .05% (index funds) col. 7: .615% - .65%
footnote (7) An extra $250 annually is charged for balances under $15,000; . . .
