    Hey everyone,
    I know this has come up countless times but I'm bringing it up again :).

    I know DAFs can NOT pay down pledges but what about Corporations, Foundations, Organizations, & Family Foundations?

    Thank you!

    Not private foundations.  That's called self-dealing.  With public foundations, you would need to ask before doing.  In fact, unless the third party is the one telling you to apply their gift to some individual pledge, you need to confirm that with the third party.
