Building Ties with DAF Donors: Where to Start
Event Category 


Contributions to donor-advised funds continue to grow as more and more donors seek the tax benefits of these accounts. Yet critics claim that money often sits in DAFs rather than going to work for nonprofits. This may be in part because it is tricky for fundraisers to identify DAF account holders. So how can your nonprofit build ties with DAF donors or the professionals who advise them?

Join us for Building Ties With DAF Donors: Where to Start to learn directly from our expert guests:  

  • Doria Leong, Head of Philanthropic Gifts, Guide Dogs for the Blind, which has seen steady growth in giving from DAFs
  • Julie Smith-Bartoloni, Associate Vice President of Donor Services and Relations, Boston Foundation
