Donor-advised funds are frequently identified as one of the fastest-growing vehicles for charitable giving, but the question of where those donor-advised fund grant dollars go has remained largely unanswered until now. A new report is the first to uncover these answers.
The Giving USA Special Report, The Data on Donor-Advised Funds: New Insights You Need to Know was researched and written by the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at IUPUI with support from Giving USA Foundation and the Fidelity Charitable Trustees’ Initiative.
- Compared to the distribution of total U.S. giving as identified by Giving USA, grants from donor-advised funds give a greater share of their giving to education and less to religion.
- Giving to education comprised 28 percent of giving from donor-advised funds from 2012 to 2015. For the same time period, giving to education in Giving USA comprised only 15 percent of total giving.
