*How DAF Donors are Giving Away Their Money
Event Category 


Affluent donors continue to take advantage of donor-advised funds, which make it easy to set money aside for charitable purposes and defer distribution of the money to charities. Despite the criticisms of these accounts, their popularity with donors is undeniable, and that shows no signs of ebbing. How can fundraisers better understand the motivations and giving preferences of donors who hold DAFs? Join us to gain insights into why more and more people give this way, how some nonprofits are successfully attracting donations through these accounts, and how to better connect with donors who give this way.

This session qualifies for 1.25 CFRE credits.
