Member Briefing: DAF National Study and Participation

Tuesday, February 21, 2023 1:00pm - 2:00pm CST

Donor advised funds are the fastest-growing form of philanthropy in the United States. In 2020, about 10.1% of all giving in the United States, or $48 billion, was donated to DAFs.

The National Study on Donor Advised Funds, launching in early 2023, will gather the most comprehensive data on DAFs in the United States. Join Jeff Williams and Brittany Kienker for this interactive topical call to learn more about how your community foundation can participate in this study, along with other community foundations, religiously-affiliated charities, and national DAF organizations from across the country. Supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the National Study on Donor Advised Funds will help ensure accurate and reliable information about DAFs is available for both internal purposes and public policy conversations.

What you will learn: What data is being requested? How will data be handled? What is the timeline for the National Study? What are my options for benchmarking? What are my next steps?

This is a MCF member-only meeting. Log-in information will be available in your confirmation email.
