RE-RUN: Philanthropic Game Changer: Strategies for Donor Advised Funds
Tuesday, September 19, 2017 | 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Location: GoTo Webinar

In case you missed it, we are re-running our June webinar on DAFs:


Donor advised funds (DAFs) certainly aren’t a new philanthropic trend, but they are gaining momentum and, for better or worse, are grabbing headlines in the process. DAFs are quickly replacing the traditional family foundation as the must-have giving vehicle of the UHNW world. While most organizations are used to receiving distributions at an annual-fund level, DAFs are quickly becoming a factor in transformational giving. Fidelity Charitable Giving reported that DAF distributions of $1 million or more increased 27% in 2015. So how do prospect development professionals maximize grants from DAFs? Webinar participants will learn the basics of how DAFs operate, take a look at the different types of DAFs, assess the philanthropic profile of a DAF donor, review why DAFs are popular, and learn about strategies to cultivate DAF grants. 

Cost: Free to members of APRA Metro DC and APRA Carolinas only; $20 for all others.

Presenter: Lindsey Nadeau, Associate Director, Presidential & Principal Gifts, The George Washington University

This webinar is co-presented by APRA DC and APRA Carolinas.
