Join RA staff and members to hear from the Council on Foundations about a recent survey from the Urban Institute on Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) managed by community foundations. The survey results will help provide a full picture on the importance of DAFs to communities nationwide and will help to address the following questions that lawmakers often have about DAFs:

  • How do community foundations use DAFs to support charitable activity?
  • How do DAFs encourage new and non-traditional investors to become involved in organized philanthropy?
  • To what extent do families use DAFs to engage the next generation in philanthropy and community affairs?
  • Do DAFs increase the capacity of host organizations to respond to community emergencies and to play a leadership role in public-private partnerships?
  • Do DAFs allow host organizations to take a multi-year strategy in dealing with a tough issue that cannot be immediately solved?

Also during this brief webinar, we will hear from RA leaders about how they are using this information to educate policymakers.

*This webinar is open to both RA staff and members.

Recording of the call is available here.

During the call there was a reference to the following Columbus Survey on community foundation trends.
