About this event

Join Philanthropy Northwest and the Regional Community Foundation Network for a conversation about the recently proposed Accelerating Charitable Efforts Act, a bill that ensures that donor-advised funds (DAFs) make funding available to working charities within a reasonable time period. During this call, our Regional CF Network members will participate in a conversation with their peers about the bill and its effects on DAFs. We will discuss:

  • The views and questions that members have about the bill.
  • How racial equity is playing into people’s perspectives of the bill?
  • How DAFs can best serve our communities?
  • What DAF regulations, in general, would members support or oppose?

Philanthropy Northwest is having internal conversations on how to respond to the proposal and your input during this call will help inform the Public Policy Committee as it considers next steps.

Please contact Mares Asfaha with any questions.
