Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) are the fastest growing giving vehicle in the country and help fuel the work of our community foundations.  Currently, there is a swirl of public policy discussions around DAFs, particularly surrounding the need for a required payout from DAFs.   Policy changes for DAFs could create challenges for a community foundation's operations and community foundation leadership needs be conversant on this topic.  This webinar is designed to provide participants with an understanding of the key issues, proposals and players.
