Reimagining Giving Together
Our community shares ideas and funds to magnify its impact beyond the sum of its parts. Here’s how our donors are making history by joining us to reimagine giving:
Raising the Bar
10% Impact Pledge
We are raising the bar by encouraging donors to maximize their annual giving. Typical donor advised fund providers do not have annual payout requirements for their funds, resulting in a growth in assets, but less grantmaking impact. We encourage all of our donors to make annual grants of 10% of the fund size, doubling the level of “payout” required by private foundations.
Hate is Not Charitable
We have taken a stand against the twisted use of charitable funds to support organizations that foment hatred. Between 2014 and 2017 DAFs contributed nearly $11 million to 34 organizations that the Southern Poverty Law Center considers to be hate groups. As leaders of the Hate Is Not Charitable movement, we have committed to reject donor recommendations to organizations engaged in hateful activities, and along with our supporters, demand policies to ensure charitable resources promote the public good.
Facilitating Connections with Grantees

Collective Impact Tools

Rapid Response Fund
We create funding collaboratives such as Rapid Response Funds to quickly move resources to support disaster relief or empower activists’ response to emerging crises.
Community Impact Fund
Our donors can automatically donate 1% or more of every contribution to the Community Impact Fund where we make grants to support urgent and timely community needs.
