(redirected from directed donor)
Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Medical, Legal, Encyclopedia.


One who gives property or assets to someone else through the vehicle of a trust.


A person or institution who gives assets to another person or institution, either directly or through a trust. Under most circumstances, donors can deduct the value (or depreciated value) of the assets given from their taxable income. While many donors give out of the goodness of their hearts, many do so in order to avoid taxes, especially when donating through a trust.


One who gives a gift.
