Putting A Passion For Justice Into Action

Donor Advised Funds (DAFs)


Donor Advised Funds Soar in 2023

Donor Advised Funds (DAF) are a crucial component of Liberty Hill’s laboratory of social change philanthropy, offering opportunities for donors to fund new and innovative models for empowering communities and supporting systemic change.

Our DAF holders set up this flexible charitable giving vehicle as an alternative to creating a private foundation.

Donor Advised Funds grantmaking in 2023 was our highest in history with our donors contributing nearly $9 million dollars to community organizations. We also launched a new easy-to-use platform to better manage the funds, which will enable us to welcome more DAFs, increase our grantmaking power, and direct more resources to social justice organizations.

We are deeply grateful for the unwavering commitment of Liberty Hill’s longtime donor activists and funding partners and the many individuals and organizations that began new partnerships with Liberty Hill during this critical moment in history.

Together, we are bending the Arc towards justice.
