Attention: Activists and Nonprofit/ Fundraising/ Legal Professionals!
Join us for an overview of donor-advised funds (DAFs) and find out how these obscure charitable vehicles are being used to serve the interests of wealthy donors and make it more difficult for nonprofits to acquire funding. What is a DAF, how do they work and who is creating them? Chuck Brown, former development officer at Silicon Valley Community Foundation, will share his view from inside "big philanthropy" and facilitate a discussion with the group.
Chuck is the founder of Orion Advising, a consultancy that supports social entrepreneurs and investors seeking a just transition to the new economy. He is also a former development officer at Silicon Valley Community Foundation, the largest community foundation in the world. He now uses his experience there to call out the injustices of "big philanthropy" seek reform. You can visit his website at www.orionadvising.com and contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
