Everywhere you turn, people are talking about Donor Advised Funds. They’ve been popular for several years, but lately they’re really hitting their stride. The recent tax law changes have raised a renewed interest in these powerful creatures due to “bunching.”
Donor Advised Funds also stir strong feelings and heated discussions within the nonprofit community. Much of this heated discussion happens because until now fundraisers have seen DAFs as competition for charitable dollars, rather than a gigantic source of potential donations. Let’s take a critical look at DAFs and discover exactly why I call them “Your $110 Billion Best Friend.”
- Learn exactly WHY Donor Advised Funds have become so popular.
- Learn HOW Donor Advised Funds work.
- Learn HOW to start fundraising FROM Donor Advised Funds.
