Weekly Edition: September 9th, 2022

Shabbat shalom! In the philanthropy world, one of the challenges in getting financial resources to nonprofit organizations is that there are billions of dollars tied up in Donor Advised Funds (DAFs) at many foundations. These are funds where the donors have received their tax deduction for giving funds to a nonprofit foundation, but the money has not actually been deployed to organizations who can put it to use executing their charitable missions. This week brings news of two financial technology applications looking to address this issue: Daffy, an app that allows DAF holders to more easily give money to charitable organizations, and Chariot, a tool that goes after the problem from the charitable organization side. Food for thought as we enter into the High Holidays in the next few weeks.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with brothers and sisters under attack in Israel, Ukraine, as well as the women of this country.

Stay cool, stay safe and stay healthy!

About Editor

I'm David Fellows, and I've served as a writer, photographer and/or an editor on my junior high and high school newspapers; the Daily Trojan at USC (where I earned my journalism degree); the student newspaper at the Anderson School at UCLA (where I earned my MBA); and I've written and edited countless business documents and presentations in the ensuing twenty years. I was also a professional photographer from 1978 to 1988 (although you never really stop...). I've been involved Jewishly since my bris and in Boulder since 1995. I'm married to my Executive Director Cheryl, and we have two children, Lauren and Ethan.
