Webinar Recording: The Role of Donor Advised Funds in an Impact Economy

RSF’s Kelley Buhles participates in a discussion hosted by Impact Entrepreneur to examine the role of Donor Advised Funds (DAF) in impact investing. The webinar explores what the best practice is or should be for DAFs to fulfill their promise of well over $100 billion (and fast-growing) in alignment and making positive impact with the society and planet they exist to serve.

Recent media coverage of Donor Advised Funds has criticized them for not moving enough money to end charities fast enough, as well as giving to hate groups and not aligning endowment investment capital with purpose.

Among the questions explored in this webinar:

  • What would a robust set of principles that elevate DAF best practices look like across grantmaking, investing and otherwise?
  • Is there an opportunity to lead the field toward these best practices, and what role could reasonable, effective regulation play if any?
