It is with both befuddlement and a sense of optimism that we approach the topic of investing in impact-oriented ventures and funds through donor advised funds (DAFs). Befuddlement in that DAFs aren’t adopting the use case more widely or as quickly as they might. Optimism in that the opportunity DAFs present for the field of impact entrepreneurs is exciting and opens up a new avenue for funding. ​
— From Donor Advised Funds: Sources of Capital for Impact Ventures and Funds by Tim Freundlich and Tracy Sherman

Join us for a Deep Dive with Tim Freundlich, co-author of the IE Magazine article, Donor Advised Funds: Sources of Capital for Impact Ventures and Funds

Impact Entrepreneur’s 2023 season of live programs launches with a Deep Dive conversation with the Founder and Executive Director of Strategic Development for ImpactAssets, a pioneering organization championing the use of donor advised funds in the impact space. We will be discussing the recent article in Impact Entrepreneur Magazine that Tim and his colleague Tracy Sherman wrote on how donor advised funds are an exciting (and underutilized) source of capital for impact enterprises and investment funds.
