Donate to D3F

HOW TO DONATE to D3F via the Daddy Appleseed Fund (DAF)

The Daddy Appleseed Fund (DAF) exists to support organizations that use creative means to encourage positive involvement by fathers and father figures with their children. Given D3F founder and DAF benefactor Allan Shedlin’s long history of hands-on experience working with children, fathers, and families, the DAF is well aware of the need to support organizations whose idealism, passion, commitment, creativity, and gumption exceed their limited resources. Thus, the DAF seeks out smaller organizations, in which its funds will have the greatest impact.​

The DAF has often approached such organizations with ideas for creating unusual methodologies and programs. It is partial to the arts and under-served, diverse populations.


Created in 2018 as a donor-advised fund at the Greater Washington Community Foundation (GWCF), the DAF is tax-exempt and accepts donations through the GWCF. Right now, the best/only way to make a tax-deductible donation is by submitting a check made out to the Greater Washington Community Foundation (GWCF) and mailed to:

Greater Washington Community Foundation

PO Box 49010

Baltimore, MD  21297-4910

In the memo section on your check, please include the donor's name and the "receiving fund name" (Daddy Appleseed Fund). Please contact us with any questions.


NOTE: DAF does not entertain applications for grants.
