I'm interested in funding a donor advised fund. I'm also considering starting a 501c3 nonprofit in the future. If I start a 501c3 nonprofit, and take a salary from it, would it be an issue if I donate to it from my donor advised fund?

Donor-advised funds are subject to requirements under the Pension Protection Act of 2006.

You may receive reasonable wages as a compensation for services you provide to 501c3 organization - that is not an issue.
