Donor Advised Fund Research Collaborative
Sponsored by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the new 2023 National Study on Donor Advised Funds will be the most comprehensive research project on DAFs to date. The study will combine data from DAF sponsoring organizations from across the U.S. (including community foundations, national sponsors, and others) to provide the most accurate and generalizable reports on DAFs. In Partnership with Johnson Center for Philanthropy and Giving Tuesday.
The National Study on Donor Advised Funds will focus on:
• The range of ways that individuals and households use DAFs.
• Donor responses to changes in giving environment (e.g., COVID-19, recession).
• Differences in DAF use among donor groups (e.g., high-net-worth donors, millennials).
By collaborating with Philanthropy Serving Organizations and other DAF sponsor networks, the study will collect data on at least 100,000 DAF accounts held by more than 80 DAF sponsoring organizations across the United States.
Join a webinar about data collection: Friday, December 2nd at 1-2pm Eastern. This session will be ideal for your organization’s staff who would be responsible for data sharing with the study’s research team (i.e., finance, database, or development staff managing related databases and CRM systems). Registration is open for that event at https://gvsu-edu.zoom.us/meeting/register/tJIrdOCvqTstEt04WNPPU-ZBipSxuNghhKwr. Additional webinars are currently scheduled for January 10, January 26, February 23, and March 21, with registration links available on the DAFRC website.
