The Donor-Advised Fund: A Growing Vehicle to Charitable Giving

Starts: 2:35 pm | Ends: 3:10 pm

While not particularly a new idea, donor-advised funds have been picking up speed in popularity amongst donors over recent years. In fact, donor-advised funds are the fastest growing giving vehicle in the U.S. In 2016, donor-advised-fund grants reached over $15 billion, as reported in the “2017 Donor-Advised Fund Report” from the National Philanthropic Trust (NPT).

In this stimulating session, Eileen Heisman, president and CEO of NPT, will lead a discussion that will touch base on the following points:

  • How fundraising executives can tap into donor-advised fund grantmaking, and how to get the attention of donor-advised fund philanthropists.
  • How charities can work with donor-advised fund sponsors.
  • What donor-advised fund philanthropists are looking for from charities and their respective missions.
  • What the trends are in donor-advised fund philanthropy, and how nonprofits can plan for it.
  • What kind of concrete, actionable, strategic information nonprofits need to incorporate donor-advised funds into their fundraising goals.
