What is a Donor Advised Fund (DAF)?

IRS: “A donor advised fund is a separately identified fund or account that is maintained and operated by a section 501(c)(3) organization, which is called a sponsoring organization. Each account is composed of contributions made by individual donors. Once the donor makes the contribution, the organization has legal control over it. However, the donor, or the donor’s representative, retains advisory privileges with respect to the distribution of funds and the investment of assets in the account.”

When you contribute to the Philanthropic Asset Reserve (PAR) Donor Advised Fund, the sponsoring organization is ImpactAssets and you are giving PAR the advisory privileges with respect to the distribution of funds and the investment of assets. The PAR account was created and funded initially by Matt Elston, and he currently has the advisory privileges.
