The Donor Advised Fund Research Collaborative (DAFRC) has released the 2024 National Study on Donor Advised Funds.

This is the largest independent study on donor advised funds to-date. 111 DAF programs voluntarily provided anonymized data to the research team.

The dataset covers nine years of activity from more than 50,000 accounts, with over 600,000 inbound contributions to DAFS and more than 2.25 million outbound grants from DAFs.
