Innovate Your Philanthropy 

This is the third and final session in the ASBC-SVC series. Many of us are aware of the concepts of concessionary investments, blended capital, and recoverable grants. But how can you get involved? What are the options that are available to you today? And who are the providers that are making these options available to you right now? This session will unveil real-world experiences of innovators who are using their Donor Advised Funds to provide deeper impact and value. It will also showcase a few of the most innovative service providers who are making it easier for all of us to invest our values. And it will provide insight into ways that you can feel less frustrated and have more fun with your philanthropy.
