Donor-advised funds (DAF) are a popular tool for charitable giving among many donors today. They offer donors an easy and secure way to invest and grow their money tax-free, and distribute it as they see fit to their favorite charities. It is imperative that charitable organizations learn to identify which of their donors hold these giving accounts, and discover how they can encourage them to make regular gifts using this tool.  

To learn more about how donor-advised funds work and how you can maximize the charitable donations that come from donors holding these accounts, explore our digital resource.
