Keynote: Donor Advised Funds: The 800 Pound Gorilla of Philanthropy

September 22 @ 9:00 AM PDT

The popularity of Donor Advised Funds is rising at a meteoric rate. According to the National Philanthropic Trust 2019 DAF Report, they grew by over 55% in 2018. DAFs are by far the fastest-growing charitable tool of our time. Charities all over America are now asking the same list of questions in response to this staggering growth. How do DAFs work? Why don't donors just give directly to charities? Why the rapid growth? We will dive in and reveal the simple answers to these big questions.
