The latest edition of the Giving Thoughts Series, entitled "Donor Advised Funds: Democratizing Philanthropy to Change the World," is now available to download free. Authored by Scott Jackson and Ann Wheatley Canela, this piece looks at how donor advised funds could create more informed and engaged donors.

Introduction from "Donor Advised Funds: Democratizing Philanthropy to Change the World"
The U.S. philanthropic landscape is transforming as new generations of individual donors seek greater control and impact, and workforce giving programs expand. This Giving Thoughts article describes how donor advised funds (DAFs) can democratize personal giving in and beyond the workplace, at a time when concerted philanthropic effort is needed to meet the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). For employers, DAFs offer a unique opportunity to tie philanthropy to corporate responsibility (CR) goals and engage employees through giving programs that reflect their values.
