A User’s Guide to Impact Investing using Donor-Advised Funds
Kate McElligott, Autodesk Foundation
There is momentum in the philanthropic investing community to leverage DAFs in creative ways. This is evident by a recent Inside Philanthropy article on the topic and the increase in philanthropic organizations (including corporate foundations) using DAFs to invest in funds and startups for impact. Organizations like Autodesk Foundation and Blue Haven Initiative have experience leveraging DAF funding to make savvy impact investments. This session will be an interactive workshop designed to explore the considerations and implications of taking this nuanced approach to philanthropy with an aim at maximizing impact.
