Have you heard of Donor Advised Funds (often known as DAFs)? Many people haven’t but they are well worth learning about and ascertaining if they can help you begin or continue Making A Difference® in your community while achieving your philanthropic dreams and goals.
Summer has arrived in Chicago! It seems as if every weekend you can participate in an “-athon” type fundraiser for a nonprofit organization. Many of these endurance events are fundraisers to benefit health related organizations such as the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure (breast cancer) or Easter Seals’ Walk with Me (for autism). Such contests raise both funds and awareness about an organization’s cause.
