Over a million individual Giving Funds also known as Donor Advised Funds or DAFs, were opened by the end of 2021 according to the National Philanthropic Trust, 2021. They report that “contributions to Giving Funds (DAFs) in 2021 totaled $72.67 billion, an all-time high.”

The growing popularity of Giving Funds (DAFs) is a reflection of the unique and significant value they provide for generous individuals, families, and businesses.
