How can DAFs be invested for positive impact? Join us as we discuss the barriers and solutions for aligning philanthropic dollars with the overall impact mission.
There is significant philanthropic capital available and yet so many purpose-driven organizations and causes are starved for funding. Financial solutions exist to match these dollars to their mission in a way that creates impact in perpetuity. This event will explore the history of philanthropy and the benefits or drawbacks to Donor Advised Funds as a philanthropic vehicle. The panelists will discuss the roadblocks that keep philanthropic dollars from being invested for positive impact, how clients can create a grant-making strategy to move from ad-hoc to intentional giving and align the investments in a DAF with the mission of the organizations they support.
The panel will discuss:
The history of philanthropy
Typical barriers to making an impact with philanthropic dollars
The benefits of Donor Advised Funds as a means of putting philanthropic capital towards positive impact
Strategies for aligning the investment portfolio with the philanthropic mission
Resources and solutions for identifying and choosing grant recipients with enduring impact
