Donor-Advised Funds: A Critical Component of our Philanthropic Ecosystem

breiby@growyourgiving.orgIndividual & Family Giving, Professional Advisors

Greater Horizons aims to provide donors with a great giving experience. A critical piece of that experience includes the ability to invest and grow charitable assets via donor-advised funds.

From time to time, there are rumblings of legislation or regulations impacting donor-advised funds. We always have our ear to the ground in D.C. Right now, we are working alongside many other donor-advised fund sponsors and our lobbyists on Capitol Hill to educate U.S. Senators and Representatives and the Department of the Treasury on the important role donor-advised funds play in the charitable landscape, and the value investment advisors bring to helping donors give and grow their charitable dollars at Greater Horizons.

Our mission is to increase charitable giving, and favorable tax laws are fundamentally important to that mission. Charitable giving improves the quality of life in our communities and lessens the burdens of our government, and when it’s easy to invest charitable assets, people give more.

If you have questions or concerns about any proposed regulations or legislation that may affect philanthropic giving, please let us know.
