A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is a giving vehicle established at a public charity. It allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time. Today, they are philanthropy’s fastest growing vehicle, accounting for 3% of all giving. This workshop discusses donor advised funds, how they differ from private foundations, tips for engagement, critiques and potential reforms.
