Training Overview

Don’t fall victim to the DAF shortfall. Learn how to use donor-advised funds to your advantage.

On May 4, the Boston College Law School Forum on Philanthropy and the Public Good published a report showing that charities lost $300 billion in contributions over five years due to the growth of donor-advised funds.

A donor-advised fund (DAF) is a giving vehicle established at a public charity. It allows donors to make charitable contributions, receive immediate tax deductions, and recommend grants from the fund over time. Today, they account for 3% of all giving and are philanthropy’s fastest-growing vehicle.

You need to understand the intricacies of DAFs to use them to your organization’s advantage and avoid the peril they have caused other nonprofits.
